Kiwi does this as a greeting, usually accompanied by a high-pitched "weeet" noise.

Re: Amazon body language

Great post! Especially I am a newbie owner of one. Have one question, Reggie when I come home he will stand upside down hanging on the front of the cage and opens his wings and makes a very loud screeching noise....I took it as he is happy and excited that I am home....sure hope you tell me that is my correct thinking? I am printing out this post to keep if you don't mind....thanks again for posting such a great topic....now how about those AG's and their body languages.....lol

Poppie does this real quick 3 times. straight up and down. It's her way of waving...as she says " Hi guys...whatcha doing?"

Re: Amazon body language

Birdman you should bring DVDs out on the Amazon behaviour and that list should come with every Amazon seller maybe then lots of inexperienced parrot owners will think twice about buying one and stop them getting put in sanctuarys and rescue centres thanks Birdman

Re: Amazon body language

What does it mean when your Amazon blows up his cheeks like the Pillsbury dough-boy and makes gurling sounds? The rest of the body seems relaxed, no puffy feathers anywhere but at the cheeks and throat. Also, the eyes are pinning while the cheeks are blown-up. Any ideas?
