Question Doesn't like doors

my year old budgie is happy and healthy. His cage is in our joint dining room and kitchen which is nice and big for him to fly around in. Our back door to the garden is in the kitchen, and whenever anyone opens it to leave or come in, he goes absolutely mental. He screams, chirps very loudly, flys around his cage etc. does anyone know why he might do this? We think he is trying to talk to the garden birds outside, or that he is just excited when someone comes into the room. Does anyone else's budgie do this? thanks

I'm a bit confused.

Is your budgie in his cage when the back door is opened so he is unable to escape?

Given his reaction to the door opening, I certainly would not risk having him out of the cage when the door is opened as he may fly out it before you can stop him.

Has the budgie's cage always been in that location?
Is this a new behavior or something he's done from the time you've had him?
Is he in a draft when the door opens?

He will just be sitting in his cage when the back door to our garden is opened (I would never let him out with any door open!) and he goes beserk. He has always done this since we got him, his cage has always been in that room, and there is no draft as the backdoor opens onto a passageway that leads to our garden.

Definitely interesting -- I don't really know why your budgie initially reacted in that manner.

When she reacts that way now, do you pay extra attention to her?
Do you ask her what's wrong and talk to her to try to calm her down?
Do you stand near her cage and tell her she's fine and everything will be allright?

If so, she's trained you very well.

When a budgie receives a reaction to a particular behavior, it often repeats the behavior to elicit the same reaction.
Then, a pattern begins...
The budgie reacts to the door opening then you react to the budgie.

If she has always done it since you have had her then perhaps it has become a habit and simply done because she likes doing it. Or when she was first brought home she wanted out of her cage and when she made a noise somebody came. Now when somebody comes in she per sees she wants out of her cage as somebody has come into the room.

I used to go over to her and calm her but now as it happens all the time I will either say shush once or shout from another room her name. Either way it can sometimes stop her but usually she will carry on chirping.

SO do you eventually end up letting her out? Do you sit and talk to her often as she is alone budgie?

She will stop after a minute or two, and I let her out multiple times a day for training and bonding, but not when she goes crazy, as when she is agitated she flys around the room and likes to be left alone.
