Default Aerobatic budgie

Hi all, Iím new here but have been a budgie owner for a few years now. Iíve always made sure my budgies have space to fly outside the cage. About 6 months ago I adopted a 1 year old second hand budgie who, when he first got him, had a few of his flight feathers clipped. When he first attempted to fly it seemed that he had either never flown (which is possible as he was hand reared) and could hardly fly a meter without crashing back to the floor. When he could finally fly the length of the room he seemed so proud of himself he was determined to do it again and again just to prove he could. Heís been flying for about 6 months now and is much better but he does some strange things. When he reaches the cage heíll often flare his fair and do a weird turn/ somersault before he lands. Heíll do a similar move when heís turning in midair, and it looks a little like heís trying to do aerobatics as if to prove to me and his budgie friends that yes he can fly. He likes to launch himself off the cage and will only spread his wings and fly when heís halfway to the ground and heíll often do low passes over our heads too. Has anyone else ever experienced this before? If this normal behaviour and just a very happy budgie being enthusiastic and a bit of a show off, or could something be wrong with his coordination? I havenít seen him struggle to coordinate himself when heís on perches with the exception of face panting into the water bath a few times.

Hi there and to the forums!

Your little one sounds like quite a character!

Budgies as a species are very acrobatic in the air, it's a tactic to avoid predators like hawks when flying in the wild. They're known for their sharp aerial turns and plunges, and it seems like your little guy is just having a great time showing his skills off! My girl also likes to do sudden drops and turns

Meanwhile, you've come to the very best place to learn even more about budgies. Since you're new to the forums, be sure to read through the forum's many articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subforum for easy reference) to ensure you have all the right information to care for your little ones.

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help

We'd love to meet your little guy when you get a chance!

Cheers!

Hi! to Talk Budgies

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Your little bird sounds absolutely delightful!
What is his name?
It would be great if you could get a video of him performing his flying skills - he sounds amazing and I'd love to see him doing his turns and flips.

Hello and

My bird also does some aerial acrobatics but not flips like you describe. It would be interesting to see a video. I look forward to seeing more of you and your bird!
