Exclamation Is my budgie Regurgitating or Vomiting?

My budgie, Pichi , has been with me for almost a month and today I was sitting in front of his cage, door open(He doesn't fly out only jumps around), and as I was making smooching sounds to him he started imitating me and after a few seconds he then started kind of fluffing up slightly, shaking his head (as if he were wet kind of) bobbing his head a bit and spit food at me and then started chirping a bit . I was a little worried so I started doing some research and I saw him eating again. I read it might be because of "courtship" or he's getting comfy around me and my parents..(thoughts?) about half an hour later my dad was reading him stories when he did the exact same thing again.


P.S
Looked at his poop, seems normal. He had been eating fine and acting fine. He's been playing with his toys and seems fine but I wasn't sure if this could be something bad... Please tell me your thoughts. Thank you for your time

Hi it does sound like regurgitating, what exactly does the stuff look like he is spitting up? Is it smooth and no seeds in it? If there is no seeds or he isn't showing any other signs then I think he is being friendly towards you.
When budgies vomit they tend to shake their heads quite severely and spit up, or gag.

From the description you gave, it does sound as though Pichi is regugitating.

Please take a look at the information in this thread:
https://talkbudgies.com/general-budgi...-vomiting.html
and give us an update on your little one's condition.

Best wishes!

What does his head look like, when budgies vomit they tend to sling their head side to side which flings the vomit back onto the head feathers... It then dries and the feathers get spikey looking. Almost as if the bird is wearing hair gel.

Some seemed to be undigested seeds with some saliva. His hairs were a little spiked up while he was bringing the food up and he shaked his head too as if he were wet and shaking water off. He has not done it since yesterday but Im still keeping an eye on him to see if there are any changes in poop or anything. Thank you all for replying. I feel less worried now

All my birds regurgitate almost regularly...I mean apart from the males feeding the females, the females too regurgitate...never saw their head feathers spiked.
Did you check the video Hyperkitty? How is your bird doing now?

He did not do that (like shown in the video). Well it doesn't seem like he did it like that. Now he seems fine he hasn't done it since.
