Love Bird sits with its head laid back

My Love Bird has started sitting with its head laid back, also weaves its head from side to side at times. The weaving only seems to be when it is waking up when is head has been laid back. Why would it do this?

Bird with head laid back

If you are saying that your bird is sleeping more than usual, then this is a sign of illness. Sleeping with it's head in it's feathers is normal, but not if this is a new behavior and happening often during the day.

The swaying does not sound normal, especially if this is also a new behavior. Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird in person, because Dr B can not tell if your bird is sick without a physical exam and probably running tests.
