Question Taps beak on perch when talking to her

Molly is my wild budgie I caught in my backyard last Sept. When I am talking to Molly, sometimes she moves her head like she's listening. I am saying things like sweet sweet baby, hello Molly, come here, come talk to me. She will puff up and shake a little, tap her beak at least once on her perch (sometimes she'll chirp) then casually come to me at the side of cage. Then do her acrobatic performance of upside down climbing. Is she bonding with me? I hope so. She still doesn't like my hand in her cage, so I avoid that as much as possible right now.

Talking to her is a great way to bond! And from the sounds of it, you're doing a great job at it. We would love to see pictures of Molly!!! And you're right to try and keep your hand our as much as possible, because this will help her to trust you more. You could try to, first budgie proof your room that she's in if it's not already, place your hand in the bottom of her cage, and leave it there for about 10 minutes. Don't move it around, but just so she sees it's not a threat. Do this 3-4 times a day, and she should start warming up to it in a couple weeks. I know that seems like a long time, but patience is key. And remember that all birds have their own individual personalities, and will work in this process at their own speed. Go with them on this, you want them to be ready for the next step, not you. Do this too quickly, and it's a good possibility that you will lose some progress. Good luck!!!

Well done, she is definitely bonding with you, she is enjoying the attention you are giving her and is asking you not to stop, read her a book if you run out of things to say, its a great feeling isn't it

lol, hey, age is nothin' but a number, Pete! Don't tell anyone I told you this, but my mother is now in her 60's, but she sure doesn't act her age. She still acts like she's in her mid 40's. Can't wait to read more posts from you!!!
