He doesn't do it when he is in cage but he does it when he is out and I ask him to step up onto perch
He also won't step up onto my finger yet
Was just wondering if the panting is becuase he is scared

Yes, budgies do pant when they get scared or are in a stressful situation.
Since your budgie is new, it's best to let him settle down a bit more before starting a more hands-on training.


EDIT: I forgot to mention that budgies also pant when feeling hot/thirsty and this is usually accompanied by their wings arching away from their bodies.
