Why my parrot is sitting in an odd way?

Sponsored Links
I have 2 year old female parrot. Sometimes she sits like her head is slighly down but her back is up. Something like cat pose in Yoga. And she holds this position for about 5 minutes. It seems really awkward.

Can anyone tell me what does this mean?

Most times a picture is worth a thousand words and this is one of them! Picture please.

Whenever I try to take a picture, she leaves that pose and come to me.

But I'll surely try to take a picture of her

Here are the pictures. The quality is not so good but you can see her posture.

Sorry cannot see any pics?

Are you saying she is perching with her head lower than her feet, tail in the air?

There are two birds in that photo... does she only do that when the male is around?

Looks like mating behaviour to me, check out alexandrine or ringneck mating videos on youtube.

The male usually sits inside the cage. But whenever she do this thing, he come near to her and start regurgitating.

If it is that, than its ok.

I was a little worried because she is the same parrot who swallowed the plastic tube. I was thinking if that tube is still inside her and disturbing her, so i asked here.
