We have had Mycroft a week now and today he has started to make a clicking noise with his beak - it sounds like 2 pebbles being tapped together.
He is is no distress & has been his usual happy self today but I wondered if anyone out there can let me know why he might be doing this. There is nothing wrong with his beak and he is in perfect health.
Could Mycroft by any chance be beak grinding?
A video of him doing the clicking sound would be helpful. Or you could go to Youtube, type "beak grinding budgie" and see if that was what Mycroft was doing.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
If I got it correct, budgies do that before they are falling asleep. My Cloud always does it right before he is about to fall asleep and it lasts for sometime until he finally sleeps at night. He does not do it when he is taking naps during the day though, mostly getting ready for night time sleep.
