A slight tail bob is normal, as it helps budgies keep their balance while perched.

If the tail bob changes to something more dramatic, and accompanied with heavy or laboured breathing, then something is wrong and your bird will need vet care.

Please refer to the information in the linked video to see what a pronounced tail bob looks like.

I am worried. Last year, I had one of my precious little feathered friends do the "click" before I left. I made sure he had food, water, and went to work. When I came home, he had passed away and was on the bottom of the cage, dead.

The "clicking" noise is one of the abnormal sounds I feel you never want to hear, it is not good..

Clicking noises and tail bobbing is usually associated with air sack mites. You'll need to make an appointment with your vet to confirm, and get some medication for him.

The medication would depend on what is causing the problem, it would be one thing for air sac mites but something different for some type of infection be it bacterial, fungal or viral. If the noise and tail bobbing are pronounced then you must not wait to get this checked by a vet, time is of the essence as birds can go downhill quite fast. The sooner treatment is started the better.

There are Avian Vets available in your area.

I'm attaching a link to one example:

As jcorbi82 said, i very scared because my chiku loves me more than himself. I would take him to the vet as soon as possible as freabee suggested. I checked his weight today and it was 29 grams ... is it ok?

29 grams is still a healthy weight, but closer to the lighter side of optimal weight.
Budgies usually weight between 26-35 grams (on average) Like humans, a healthy weight can be different for each individual.

By no means is he underweight, but do keep an eye on it, and report any weight loss to your vet.
