why does my bird grab his leg?

i have a male cockatiel that likes to grab his leg and make noises. he does this every once in awhile and i'm not sure if he's being playful or not because it doesn't appear he's hurting himself.

There is no telling if this is a thing the bird just likes to do or if there is something bothering the bird without examining the bird.

Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird, if your bird has not seen an avian vet in the last year.
