I had really bad cramps the other day in my stomach and literally screamed from the pain and Cloud was playing with his fav. toy next to me, he immediately stopped playing and run towards me, hop on my arm and looked me in the eye, looked anxious, melted my heart sweet babie
And today he stepped on my finger, but then flew back to the ceiling fan-his fav. place in the house to perch (it is off of course). I told him Cloud dontchu love me anymore, you ran away from me, as soon as I said that he flew back down, then I said I love you but may be you don't love me anymore, you don't want to play with me, he flew and landed on my finger himself and looked me in the eye. I think budgies do understand everything, they are like a human. He melted my heart, so sweet, he does care about me as much as I care about him, how nice it is to know that !
That's very true, budgies and other species of pet birds are able to read our emotions and to act according to them. This is the most visible when the bond we have with them is stronger.
Over the years I have had (and to this day continue to have) several sweet manifestations from my special birds when not feeling well health wise or even when feeling sad or a bit more nervous. Through their love, they have helped me a great deal and continue to do so.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
I believe this implicitly, from close personal experience with many of my dogs--those with whom I shared a stronger bond. I can well believe it also of budgies. I think animals perceive much, much more than we casually credit them.
oh yes indeed they know when something is wrong or when you're happy.animals are intuned with human emotions.I,he seen it from dogs,cats and budgies as well.my Gracie can tell when I'm not feeling well.she tries her best to comfort me by whistling and playing as she chirps to me.the3e have been lots of studies on animals being able to detect human emotions.blessings and so glad you brought this up.a interesting topic.blessings always
Pardon my mispelling on words.my auto correct is not working right lol.
princess Gracie Barber welcomes you all and blessings

Reason: typos sorry
Sometimes when Sweetie and I are playing he'll get a little excited and he'll bite my lip or nose. It really hurts, so I tear up, pull him away, and say "I don't like that, you hurt mama!!" and cry. He always calms down, chirps quietly at me, tried to snuggle up to me, as if to say he's sorry. He's always much calmer with playing afterwards too.
I wholeheartedly agree with you regarding the bond and intuition between a human and animal be it what ever species. I have experienced it too.
Budget and myself are extremely connected to the point of I know what he means and is trying to tell me when he uses budgie behaviours and sounds.
He also shows his feelings, love , gratitude, happiness and grumpiness if I do not get what he is trying to tell me.
I can have Budget sit cuddled up next to my face happily chatting away, preening me then he simply presents his face and fluffs up his feathers as if to say now my turn .
When he is sick, he will always come to me , he looks at me and then snuggles in. Just today I had to catch him and wash his vent area, he had a coupe of hard blobs well and truly stuck. He does not like being enclosed in a hand no budgie does, but he watched me and did not struggle at all. He was able to poop normally after thankfully, after the ordeal he simply came and sat under my chin as always gave me a kiss as if to say thankyou.
