Default Is my budgie scared?

Yesterday I bought a baby budgie. The people at the pet store said he was 2 months old. When we brought him home, he remained still and quiet for about 8 hours, however, after that he started jumping and flying around the cage frantically. Then he repeatedly tried opening the cage door to escape. Today, he still continues to jump and fly around frantically, and now he is screeching very loudly and still trying to escape. Could he be overly scared or frustrated? I'm really worried about him and I'm wondering whether I should return him to the pet store so he can be with his friends again. Is there anything I can do to calm him down and make him less afraid? Keep in mind we are giving him his space and not doing anything to directly scare him, such as making loud noises or attempting to grab him. What should I do? I'm very concerned for him. Thanks to anyone who replies.

Welcome to talk budgies....check this out...

To add to what is in that thread, it is good to completely cover your cage, leaving only the front open/uncovered. This will make the little one feel safer...

I would definitely suggest putting on some soft easy music, like nature sounds. Youtube has plenty of several hour long nature sound background noise videos you can play for your new bebe.
Cover three sides of the cage asap! And definitely read that thread, it'll really help

Hi...welcome to TB Forums. When I got my budgies, they were scared and didn't eat anything for a whole day and quietly stepped up on my finger whenever I used to insert the hand in the cage. I called the pet store and asked the guy what was the matter. He told me to isolate the birds in a room with their food and water. I did some research on the topic and found similar advice online. So I followed the course and the next day they started eating. I was so frustrated previously that I vent my anger on the pet store but he was a nice guy and even offered to change the birds if they didn't respond to the isolation.
I've no idea for a single budgie. Jonah has provided a very informative link for the beginners. Budgies are social birds and they are kept with other birds in a pet store. So, initially they'll definitely be scared and slowly get accustomed to your surroundings & therefore you could try isolating it for a few hours.
Good luck.
