Teasing Head shaking?

Not a medical conren but i was wondering why Buddy shakes his head when i talk or whistle to him?
Birdie doesnt do this and ive heard its because they either dont like or like a noise? Does anyone know the truth behind this?
Does that mean hes listning to my babble!!

I would like to know this as well, when ever I talk to my birds when they are close to my face they always shake their heads!!

Some say its because they like it, others say its because they don't like it.... It could also be a loud noise and its bothering them.... or he's really paying attention and learning... I noticed that two of my male cockatiels shake their heads, but none of my females have ever done that . . . . & both of the head shakers are the one's that sing & whistle ... : S

I don't really know.. there's a lot of theories, if anyone knows the true behind it ... Please let us know !

Spike shakes his head if I rub my fingers on a magazine page, I think he does it because he does not like the sound
