When a budgie (or other kind of pet bird) is overheating there are two noticeable signs: they put their wings further away from their bodies (making an arch with the wings) and they repeatedly open and close their beak as if they are panting. This means they are hot and thirsty.
It's a good idea to mist our birdies on very hot days or give them access to a birdie bath (for those who like to bathe).
I also like to offer my birds big leafy greens freshly washed, they love to bathe and drink from the droplets and of course eating the veggies and this also helps them to be hydrated.
