Thanks guys
It's hard to put Bernie in another room because our main level is an open concept home, so from Bernie's cage, he can pretty much see everything except around the corner leading to the bathroom and stairs. When I'm upstairs and he calls, sometimes I tell him I'm coming or I'm here while I head over to his viewing vicinity.
I'm thinking maybe my husband might need to spend more 1 on 1 time with Bernie so he won't have to call for me, but he nips at my husband a lot. I know Bernie doesn't hate him though because he loooves getting head scratches from my husband. He even flies away from me to get attention from my husband when he goes back into Bernie's view.
You think talking to Bernie in a more quieter tone will help?
Should I also cover his cage for the 15 min while I'm upstairs taking a shower?

Yeah.. he says like 30 words and sounds now and he definitely knows when to use what. I'll take something away from him and he'll lift his wings and say "excuse me!" really sassily. He just learned to play peekaboo (I cover him and say 1-2-3 and lift the cover and he says peekaboo). And he looooves kisses. He'll say, "Gimme a kiss" followed by a BIIIIG KISS and then "thank you!"

Actually I have found that when he gets real screechy and I ignore him, he will almost always end up talking to himself and settling down that way. I just think he likes the sound of his own voice.

tijya will become famous soon enough

Kingston nips at my husband, never me. But he will also let my husband give him scritches, whereas I'm not allowed. They are funny creatures.

I've had 2 parrotlets and neither were noisy in their cage. Kingston has his chatty moments when he is let out of his cage. He needs to let the whole neighbourhood know he's free. But not contact calls. The noises he makes in the cage is really mimicking of the sun conure. But he will get her going enough that SHE contact calls and I deal with that.

I do cover them both sometimes if they get too wound up. It only takes a few minutes to get them to calm down. I've also learned it's easier to bring Nichi (sun conure) out for phone calls than to have her scream in the background. That said, I only do it for some calls because she likes to 'talk' too, and not everyone appreciates parrot chatter.
