Default Chewing on the mirror

Lemon Drop recently has started liking to sit on and chew on a mirror that I have in my living room. She doesn't seem to be acting like she is in love with her image but maybe it is related to seeing her image. Although she chews on the top of the mirror too where she couldn't see herself very well. She also just likes to perch there and nap or watch the room. I think it must be fun to climb on. I have attached an image to show you. https://imgur.com/UolViDa I am mainly worried about her chewing, even though I can't even see any marks on the mirror frame to show where she has munched. Any wisdom as to why she is doing this?

The second image is just because she looks funny. https://imgur.com/XGy2zsn Thanks!

Sounds like she's doing it because well, budgies like to chew things. And they love shiny things. While she may not be showing signs of being obsessed with her image, that may still develop. I suggest you get a sheet and drape it over the mirror when she is out to discourage her. I would be concerned about her ingesting wood varnish on the mirror. Also be sure to clean up there as she's probably pooped up there as well.

What a goof! I agree, I would cover the mirror so she doesn't chew on the treated wood anymore!
