Default Getting comfy

This past week we moved Merlin to a room with more traffic, TV always going, etc. He has really been opening up. Just wanted to share this photo, he was resting on one foot and trilling/squawking to himself. He looks more grown up with his head all fluffed (before the Vet trip, he was not so happy afterward)
Still working on that hand taming, but will be a little setback because he's on a round of antibiotics as he has been sneezing, so he's going to be even more afraid of hands. Vet said no evidence of anything wrong because she hears nothing in lungs, etc (thankfully!), but wants to be safe, as birds can take turns for the worst rather quick. Poops are normal and eating and drinking and singing as normal. (If anything, eating more, seriously pigs out on kale, carrot, Apple and cilantro - his current favs!)
If anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear. He will currently only eat veggies, seeds, etc from my hands. Other than that he's a bit skittish with hands.
He weighed in at 45g. So big compared to all of our others we've had in the past.

It sounds as though Merlin is settling in well!
CUTE picture.

Thank you both
I look forward to continuously seeing him open up. He is extremely handsome with his head fluffed. I just love him (even if he's not ready for human handling at this time)

He's very handsome! I'm glad he opened up when exposed to more noise.

Thank you Susan!! We had been keeping him in a quieter place because the move for him was very stressful, then decided time for a noisier place and he seems to be thriving with more voices around him.

Merlin is indeed very handsome, I am so happy he is starting to become more settled and relaxed, remember to a budgie silence is a sign of danger, the more noise the better

Yes yes! I mean we had him in a place where there wasn't as much physical movement compared to where he is now, because he'd get scared and jump off of perches if someone moved too suddenly.

Merlin is very distinguished looking.. or maybe I'm just used to seeing him in your avatar photo with his dashing cap!! Sounds like he is doing well!

Merlin is adorable! Does he take baths? My Sammy is a little piggy and doesn't like to bathe very often, and he sneezes sometimes when he preens himself. Could Merlin be doing the same? It took us a while to realize that Sammy just sneezes a lot

He is very cute, and I'm glad to hear that he's settling in just fine!
