Blowing bubbles

Did you know that budgies can blow bubbles?  Phineas can.

He has always been into regurgitating & favours my finger or thumb, on my right hand, of course.  A few weeks prior to his recent little break from regurgitating & jiggying due to moulting/breeding/a reason known only to Phinny, the amount of seed regurgitated increased.

Normally, he would leave, at most, a very thin smear of goop on my finger.  All seed is gobbled back up by him.  During the increased regurgitation, a lot more was left behind:

It was when there was the increase that I noticed his ability to blow bubbles with the goop.  I was impressed to say the least!  If you look closely at some of the photos above, you can see the goop is foamy & bubbly.

Since his return to normal form, he has quickly returned to that high level of regurgitating.  All the signs are there:

  • Lots left on my finger when he has finished,
  • The occasional blowing of a goopy bubble,
  • Near constant demands for my finger to regurgitate on/to.

I wonder how long this phase will last?
