Default clicking noises

Hello
My budgie makes what sounds like breaking seeds like shes eating but she isnt.... I am not sure if this is a sign of contentment?? I cant see her doing anything when she does it and if I walk up to her she looks at me and stops.

She seems to do this the majority of the time early evening usually a couple hours after she eats and lately she does this every evening. I sure hope it is a sign of being happy? any ideas??

It sounds like beak grinding. Beak grinding is a sign of contentment and relaxation. All four of my budgies do it and it is a normal behavior.

It sounds like you are doing wonderful , your budgie is happy and content. they do beak grinding usually when they are very happy and ready to have a nap or simply because they are happy. The fluffing up is another sign. Well done

I personally think that it does sound like they are eating.
Isn't it adorable when they fluff up? It sounds like she is a very happy little budgie.
