Default Female budgie in the mood?

I was just wondering, as of late Pacha has been really.. uh, getting friendly with one of the branches in her cage. I've since then shuffled all her perches and toys and whatnot around, but I'm just wondering what it is she's doing...

(she and my kakariki fly around during the day, she does not go into her cage on her own: she prefers sitting in the kakariki's cage alongside him)

I've been thinking on maybe introducing another (female) budgie for her as a companion since I'm not sure if this is a thing she does out of boredom or loneliness or whatever...

Sorry for the vertical filming!
Video comment: She does this every so often, chirps and squawks and spreads her wings. It looks like masturbation. I checked her vent but there's no droppings blocking it or whatever..

Yes, your budgie is pleasuring herself.
She's probably doing so simply because it feels good to her.

Introducing another female will not necessarily stop the behavior.
I have male budgies that play together during the day but one of them still engages in pleasuring himself on a regular basis.

Thank you for clarifying! I thought this sort of behavior was mostly present in males, but it appears this girl don't need no man :'-)

Thank you, once again!

You're most welcome.

We'd love to see some pictures of Pacha and your Kakaraki if you have any you'd like to share.
