Owning budgies can be a very interesting and curious experience, these birds have their own personalities and can surprise you as a budgie owner, one surprising thing that budgies do is opening their beaks when you try to talk to them
This article is a look into why a budgie will open its beak when you talk to it.
Budgie opens its beak when I talk to him:
Knowing why your bird does certain behaviors can help you know how your bird is doing and if the bird is stressed, distressed or healthy.
If your bird is opening its beak when you talk to him then the bird may simply be practicing or mimicking what you’re saying.
They say that mimicry is the sincerest form of flattery, this is true for budgies too. A bird opening and closing its beak when you are around it may be trying to mimic what you are saying.
The birds can also mimic other birds if they are exposed to other birds and they may also mimic sounds in their environment without any sound actually coming out of their beaks.
What to do:
This mimicking of your behavior is normal budgie behavior and isn’t something that you should worry about. As long as the bird isn’t showing any signs of distress then the bird should be fine.
If the beak moving comes with signs of distress, or signs of being ill, then taking the bird to the vet is the best thing to do for your bird.
