And Speaking of Hormones...

Okay, so I finally figured out how to get a video onto here, so here it is: https://www.facebook.com/bentgirl/vi...8741417234512/

This is something Francis does EXCESSIVELY. Mostly on my husband but also somewhat on me and on some of his toys. He makes regurgitating motions but rarely actually brings anything up.

Now, in the time span between me t-r-y-i-n-g to get the video posted here and today, I have taken him to his first visit with his new vet, who looked at the video straight off my phone. The vet is an avian-only vet (yay) and seems VERY knowledgeable. He said that Francis is "hyper-hormonal".

I wondered if any of you all have seen this behavior in your birds.

Yep, looks like regurgitation. When they regurgitate for humans they don’t always actually expel something. Domethimes isn’t just the motions, maybe a little comes up but it stays in the mouth and we don’t see it.

Re: And Speaking of Hormones...

He hormonal and regurgitation and pecking are Hormonal behavior. Males U2ís typically will also put down head and make clicking sounds.
