Parrot alarm clock

Over the weekend, I had an idea for a product: the parrot alarm clock.

Let's say you set your alarm for 5 am.  For the first 5 minutes or so, it could be very sweet noises -- light chirping, a sweet grey saying, "wanna get up?  I love you!"  Maybe some pleasant whistling.

If you don't turn the alarm off and get out of bed, it slowly escalates the parrot noises -- repetitive caique beeping, perhaps, or violent bell-ringing.

If you're not up by 5:10, it starts in on amazon alarm calls or macaw squawking.

5:15?  The big guns are called in: cockatoo screaming.

I have an amazon that learned the alarm clock noise and is quite loud with it, and repetitive. He will go for hours with out relenting. It gives me a migraine much faster then my cackatoo's scream. The too is louder, but she only does it once in a while. :D

Interestingly enough, it was Basil, my amazon, who gave me the idea as he woke me up from a nap with his alarm call. So, Suzanne, maybe you're on to something with making the amazon top irritant :)

The most irritating parrot noise I have ever heard came from a tiny green cheek conure. It was at just the right (wrong) pitch. Give me Rocky screaming any day over that!

I think your right Mary. The amazon would work for it's repetitive nature alone.

A too's scream is so loud and startling you might end up with lawsuits for the ensuing heart attacks. ;)

All you need is the recordings and I can set it up , Ac tom the TOO's being to loud you still will set the max volume control . Think you could get me the recordings ?

It just occurred to me that I can put this together n all you have to do is get the recordings , Set up a place to send the recordings . Each recording should be at lease a minute long to prevent the sound from being monotonous ,
