My cockatiel is acting strange

My male cockatiel is ducking his head next to his leg, sticking his tail feathers up, and chirping constantly. He'll do it for hours. I don't know what he's doing! Can someone tell me if this is bad, or normal?

Your bird may have something painful or causing discomfort and is trying to figure out what it is. Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to make sure it does not have a tumor or infection causing this behavior.
