Default Knock knock bird

Matey is different to all other cockatiels I have had in that he loves to knock on things that make a noise. To explain further he likes to try knocking on most surfaces around the his patch-the laundry, bathroom, lounge room and kitchen.

My previous cockatiels knocked on their perches to indicate their territory.

Matey is different .He knocks everywhere he goes.The microwave top,the oven door,the top of the hollow core ply kitchen door, the bathroom medicine cabinet and the metal framed office desk adjacent to my computer to name a few.
Sometimes I wonder if there was a wood pecker in his family tree ?

I believe he likes to compare the different resonances that the various surfaces
provide. Maybe I can teach him Morse code

Oscar does the same regarding claiming his teritory. Knocks on the bathroom cabinet, the TV, the record player, the draining board. He also spreads his wings when I cover him up at night, when really there is no need as I won't be getting in his cage with him!
