Default budgie lying on his tummy

hello!

recently i have noticed my male budgie sometimes lies on the top of the cage on his tummy. he doesn't do this too often, i only saw him twice so far and it's been two weeks in between these behaviors. i have looked this up but wherever i went, it was female budgies who were in question and it usually had to do with nesting.

he eats regularly and seems cheerful throughout the day. he chirps as much as usual (which is a lot.....) and plays with a female budgie i have.

i took pictures of both when he did it two weeks ago and right now:


photo taken 2 weeks ago


photo taken today

i'm just a little concerned whether something is wrong with him, as i have never seen a budgie do this before (having had a few more in the past). i would just like to know if he's ok and not in pain.

thank you in advance for your replies!

Some of my budgies like to lie on their tummies to rest as well.

As long as he's eating, drinking, pooping and acting normally otherwise, there is nothing to be concerned about.

You are most welcome!

By the way -- it is my male budgies that like to rest on their tummies!

He's adorable! It looks like he's sunbathing

I agree, nothing to be concerned about!
