Opening wings and moving beak crazily

I just wanted a second opinion? Is this bird batting?
She opens her wings and moves beak and sometimes it looks like she wanna reach under her wings with her beak, a friend of mine told that it's called "bird batting" a sign of playful tiel!

Re: Opening wings and moving beak crazily

My female, Berry, does this all the time. At least in my experience, it is definitely the sign of a happy bird! She always does it when she is excited or playing.

She might enjoy a spritz from a water bottle!!! Birds can consort themselves into some really funny positions when they are bathing!

Re: Opening wings and moving beak crazily

some of my girls do this.
When I give them a bath with the spray bottle they ALL do it.

He/she is just enjoying herself and being playful.
