My budgie is about 6 months old and for the last 3 months has occasionally twitched his head rapidly into my finger nail (mainly when happy) and lately I have grown more and more concerned about the behavior as its started happening a little more frequently. By rapdily I mean he can hit his beak on my nail 2-3 times in a rapid manor that a camera only picks it up as looking like one small tap when I try to record a video of it, any help would be appreciated as I'm new to owning such a pet and never heard of this behavior during research before ownership.
Thankyou for your help!!
A video of him doing it with rough times of it happening in the description, each time it looks like he is doing it, my finger nail is being tapped 2-3-4 times for each visible 1
I don't see anything in the video or in your description to be concerned about.
It seems your budgie is simply showing you affection by the beak tapping.
If the budgie's cere is as white as it appears to be in the video, then you actually have a female rather than a male.
If you post a clear, in-focus picture of the cere taken in natural light, (no flash/no direct sunlight) then the gender can be accurately confirmed for you.
