: Moving him is worth a try, but he does have the lovebird for company, so that may not be the solution. What do you do when he screams? You can easily accidentally reinforce a behavior by yelling at the bird or otherwise reacting... the bird may see ANY attention as rewarding. How much out of cage time does he get? What kind of birds are the smaller birds?
i found a nice article in bird talk about all the negative reinforcement were giving him. he does get lots of out time and the other room is- 2 bourkes, 3 parakeets, 3 sparrows, and a cockatiel. my issue with him in their room is the sparrows are only caged for bed and out all day. this is a problem because he can easily bite them if they land on his cage.
