I experienced sudden hearing loss some yrs. ago in one ear and believe it may have been caused by my pet lovebirds loudly screeching directly in my ear on a couple of occasions, but the doc doesn't believe that is the likely cause (though he has no other explanation) just curious if anyone else has ever experienced this???

Far more liklely the cause was an inner ear infection. I had one that caused about 90% hearing loss in one ear for a couple of months. The symptom was like having water in the outer ear, but that was clear. My doctor didn't have a cure but it cleared up on it's own.

My scarlet macaw has screamed in my ear a couple of times loud enough to be quite painful but that hasn't caused damage long term damage,just a ringing for a couple of days... At 60 my hearing isn't perfect but it's normal for my age.

Prolonged exposure to loud noises of any type can cause hearing loss. The key is 'prolonged' exposure. A couple loud chirps from your little bird won't cause it.

Exactly! Birds can certainly make your ears ring when they let go right in your ear, but it's not going to happen from a few times.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
