Default Flying Around Alot?

Hi! I'm new around here.

I have an 8 month male budgie and he's hand tame/trained to me. He'll sleep and rest on my shoulder, and play around. Also, I got him about a month ago.

I've noticed he doesnt stay with me for long though. His wings are clipped and he tries to fly around. Is he trying to get away from me or is he adventuring? Earlier I was talking to some friends in the kitchen and he was just sitting on my shoulder and all of a sudden he just randomly flies onto the fridge.

Why is he doing this?

Welcome to the forums!

What you have described about your budgie wanting to fly around is perfectly normal, budgies are birds and they have wings for reason which is to fly when they wish to do so. It's not realistic to assume that even for a fully tame pet bird that he/she will not fly around and would constantly be on our shoulder or finger.

The purpose of out of cage time is also to provide the pet bird the chance to get some good exercise, to stretch the wings and give some flights across the room(s), provided they are safe for the bird.
The kitchen area is one of the most dangerous places for a budgie to be in, especially during meal times, when preparing meals, cooking and making the normal chores on that area.

Since you seem relatively new to budgies, the information on the several articles and sticky threads at the top of each section of the forums will be extremely useful as you become more familiar with the species.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

It's very normal and natural for your budgie to want to fly, exercise and enjoy himself!
Think of what budgies and other birds do in the wild... they fly and they like perching up on high places.
I agree with aluz that it is best you find a different room that is bird-safe for your budgie to enjoy his out-of-cage time.

Please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

You'll find most of your basic questions about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

Hi there and to the forums!

You've been given some excellent advice and resources. I agree completely with the posts above; all budgies want to fly and explore and it's completely normal. In fact, if you had a "velcro bird", who never wanted to leave your side, there would be a problem!

You couldn't have come to a better place to learn even more about budgie care, and share about your bud, too. We'd love to meet him when you get a chance!

Meanwhile, if you have any questions after reading though all the links provided, be sure to ask as we'd love to help

I hope to meet your cute little guy soon! He sounds like a sweetheart

Hope to see you around!

It's a good thing that your bird is trying to fly around. Don't worry he doesn't dislike you or wants to get away from you it's just his way of saying "hey mommy I'd love to exercise please!" Budgies need to be able to stay fit and the only way they can do that is flying and exercise!
