So when Sidney was a baby he would grab a hold of my finger with his beak and make his whole body shake - I thought this was because he was used to associating fingers with being hand fed.
Well he hasn't done it in awhil then last night he started doing it again.
SO I'm confused..... he's too old to be hand fed, but too young to be exhibiting the reguritation/sexual behavior.
ANy ideas?

Kelli, Mojo exhibits baby-birdie behavior when he is feeling any number of things: particularly unsure, particularly fond, exhorbitantly (gushingly) loving. What was the context of this happening?

POST NOTE EDIT: and yes, that is very interesting behavior! :)

Every now and then Kito will still do this, especially when he's feeling in a baby kinda mood, clingy playfull and specially when he wants extra cuddle time. :D

Is Sidney doing this at any particular time of day?

or is it at random times?

So most of you know I live in rather small city and a couple of nights a week we go to the larger city for shopping and recreation and stuff. When I get home the first thing I do is let everyone out of their cages, then I sit down with him and we play with his jingly ball and cuddle and eat pecans and get scratches it is about 30 minutes that is totally devoted to be doing nothing but giving him one on one attention - we also practice sounds and mimicking during this time. So we play about 30 minutes before my shower in the evening during the day when he is out it is mostly on his play gym while I am working.

Is this when he is grabing finger?

Could be he's just pleased to see his Mama, and knows that this is their time completely
