African Grey fluffing up


What does it mean when our bird fluffs up but does not pin her eyes, when we go to feed her?


Answer:

Thank you for attending our webinar by Lisa Bono. Below is Lisa’s response:

Hi Tony,

Without me seeing the behavior, I can only guess that it is a sign of contentment. I would need to know what is going on right before this behavior and directly afterwards. My Stirling will puff up and wag his tail feathers each night as I put him in his night cage. I tell him it’s sleepy time and his behavior indicates he is content. I take it as his is winding down his day.
