Default Budgies suddenly stopped being skittish?

Since I got my flock they've all been very nervous around me both in and out of their cages. I couldn't get my hands near them without them flying away and finding alternative perches.

Since Rio died on Sunday though it's like they've turned around completely, they come to the front of the cage to greet me, don't shy away or seem scared in the slightest. Could this be a part of them mourning?

They don't seem ill at all, they're not lethargic and they play with each other while they're out of their cages but today Holly and Noisy seemed really curious about me and they're usually the most cautious. Holly actually landed on my head and sat there for about 5 minutes and Noisy came to give my hair a clean.

Before he passed Rio was the only one who would even entertain my presence so I'm a bit confused by this (hopefully positive) change.

Since budgies are able to read our emotions, it's possible that they are connecting to you more during the grieving period and having a stronger sense of empathy.

That's really sweet. I don't think I would have expected them to react this way, especially Holly. She used to fly to the other side of the cage if I even walked a bit too close.

She actually went into Noisy and Dan's cage with them tonight when it was bed time, would I be ok leaving her in there with them or should I put her back into her own cage? They're getting along fine.

Rachael,

As long as the three of them are getting along fine together in the cage you can leave her there overnight.

However, I would be sure she is in her own cage if you leave the budgies during the day for any period of time -- just to be on the safe side.
