Default Head twitch Left to Right

I think it was a week and a half ago or two weeks,idk,when my budgies were in my room. By mistake I turned on the speaker(1 only works) for the computer so they could hear the music I wanted them to hear. Its called "Boku no Nooto" and is a japanese song by Sukima switch. When it came on by mistake I didn't know the bass was going to be too loud and it ended up jump scaring my little budgies. I had to turn it off. For a few seconds Angelina's wings were twitching a bit and she was twitching her head left to right. It was most likely too loud and made her ears uncomfortable or something like that. It stopped after a few seconds and she never did it again but I was wondering if you guys ever had a moment where your budgies head twitched left to right from something loud or something frightening them. I think that it is probably a rare sight.

I can't say that I have ever experienced my birds' head twitching after a scare.
When my budgies get scared due to a loud, unexpected noise, their bodies become slimmer and their stance changes from an upright position to the one where they are preparing themselves to fly, the eyes open up more in alertness.
Sometimes there can be a bit of heavy breathing and panting, but this is just momentary till they calm back down.

Since she hasn't done the head twitch since you turned on the music too loud, it was probably caused by the pain in her ears.

Remember, like most birds, budgies' hearing is much more sensitive than a human's so the level of the music was probably excruciating for her.

Thanks for the input aluz and Faery. I guess it may only be a pain in the ears thing.I'll make sure it doesn't happen again but I'd hate to think of it being excruciating for her.Poor Angelina but I'm glad she turned out okay.
