I absolutely LOVE my two budgie boys! I've had them for three weeks now, and I never get tired of watching them. But I'm curious about their cute little head bobbing...does anybody know what it signifies? They both do it a lot, usually when they're happily jumping around and chirping away. Are they trying to tell me something, or are they just communicating with each other?

Just curious...

Chances they are flirting with each other.

I love when they bob their heads, they're like "yep yep yep"..I had never known what it meant either, but it is the best...I love when they do that.

Yes, it's just an action through which to express their excitement. And it's absolutely adorable!

I love when they do the bobbing! We call it dancing too smile

I know Toasty is very happy and excited when he does that. Its a such a very cute thing to watch.

You can see him doing the bobbing dance like crazy and talking to himself in a reflection on the youtube vids I have of him

Toasty loves his reflection... This one is shorter


Toasty dances and talks... This vid is a little longer...more dancing and talking..hehe

Hope you enjoy both smile
