Budgie throwing up
by: Alex

Your budgie is showing affection to the bell.

They regurgitate to thei mates and companions to show affection.

It can look like kissing sometimes between budgies.

Bird regurgitating on bell
by: Tracie

This is normal behavior, unfortunately. We have to keep our cages a few feet away from our walls and put chair mats under the cages because our birds regurgitate on everything. It ends up all over the walls and floor.

If the bird starts throwing up undigested food, then you need to get your bird to an avian vet right away.
