Recently my budgie Kiwi lost his brother, Mango. He is about 10-11 so he is very old, but has been super healthy. I've been observing him to make sure he's doing alright now that he's a lone budgie. I've attached a video, since I've noticed that he's been either preening or plucking under his wing. He's had issues with feathers (he had to get a cyst removed) but that was a long time ago so it's unrelated. Does it look like he is preening or plucking?

It looks to me like he is picking at something under his wing but that does not mean he is plucking, when my birds preen I will see them doing the same type of thing. Do you see him pulling out feathers?

I don't see him pulling anything out and there aren't any feathers at the bottom of his cage. Is it usually more obvious if he's plucking?
