Default Budgie making this unusual sound all day

Hi this is my budgie Lin. I got her about 3 months ago. She is constantly making this chirping sound and flapping her wings a few times a day since I got her. I tried everything as I dont understand what she wants, so I gave her all sorts of toys, kept her with my entire flock, then she bonded with my male budgie Leon, so I put them in a separate cage, she still continued the same chirping so i got her back with the flock and then now again back with Leon in a another cage, she's healthy, eats and sleeps well, gets out of cage time, but im not sure what this means. Can anyone please explain ? Thank you.

That chirp is very normal, your Lin is flock calling and this video depicts with perfection the wing vibration when budgies are excited/enthusiastic.
In this case, there's no reason for concern, your Lin is perfectly fine, some budgies will simply express the way your Lin does and that's okay.

My budgie Mona would also do this wing vibration often and get all excited chirping alongside the sparrows the moment I placed her cage outside for some sun and fresh air.

I played this video and a couple of mind flock called back to Lin. As Aluz has stated you don't need to be concerned that anything is wrong.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with being over concerned when it comes to your birds health and well being.

You're very welcome! I'm glad your mind is more put at ease now.

Haha she got the twitchies!

I assume (and could be wrong) that sometimes they do that wing-twitch if their wing is itchy or has a prickly pin feather too.

Lin is really cute btw!

I call this the happy jitters!

That's true, and by paying attention to the budgie's body language we can be able to tell the differences when it comes to the wing movements.

When a budgie is slightly bothered or feeling discomfort from a wing, whether as a direct result from a moult or from losing one or more flight feathers during a night fright, the wing vibration will be more subtle (not as intense as the one shown in the video) and only one part can be affected as in just one wing (either the left or the right one). Only if both wings are affected will there vibration on both.
Then there is also another type of wing vibration which is the subtlest one and this can be seen as an affectionate response to a mate or favourite human where the budgie will vibrate the wings when we greet and interact more closely with them.

In the specific case shown in the video this stronger wing vibration/slight flapping is a clear indication of excitedness/enthusiasm.
