Default Does anyone have a comparison of tail bobbing?

so i hear people say that "some" tail bobbing is normal, where-as others (usually more pronounced) are a sign of sickness.

as someone who is still new-ish to owning budgies, how can i spot the difference? does anyone have comparison of the two on video?
thanks

A pronounced tail bob is usually about 1/2" or so in movement.

oh nevermind yeah that's incredibly obvious in that case. my little flint occasionally has some tail bobbing, usually in the evening before bed, or when relaxing. and i was just curious as to how it looked, thanks for the video, was very informative!

Default Tail bobbing normal while chattering/singing?

Basically what the title says.
Is it normal behaviour for them to bob their tail while they're chattering/singing?
The only movement i see usually when my flint chatters is tail twitching occasionally, or a mild bob but soon as he falls silent he stops it.

is that normal or am i looking too much into it?

A slight tail bob is normal you may even see it when the bird is silent.

You had already asked about tail bobbing in a previous thread and were given an example of the type tail bobbing which is the type to be concerned about.

A slight movement of the tail is normal.

I've merged your two threads.
