can't watch it because I'm on dial up but I'm guessing it's 'the wiggle' where it looks like her neck is doing the moonwalk. If so, she's regurgitating for you :D . Don't worry, it's a sign of affection.

Regards,

yeah... that seems to be exactly what's going on! Well... at least she's getting used to her new home.
Actually, she's started leaving her cage of her own volition to come sleep on my shoulder, so that's a vast improvement over when she first arrived. yay!

My male parrotlet does exactly the same thing, except he also shakes his tail feathers and jumps around- I wondered if it was an overt mating display.

Yup, it’s feeding - my male does it to my female all the time.

It looks weird, huh. I expected them to pump like you see other birds doing - I wasn’t expecting the side-to-side motion :D

Sam used to do this to our fingers when we'd stick them in his cage. He would also regurgitate for Jibby sometimes. :)
