    Re: Tail bobbing

    How much was it bobbing? All birds' tails bob when they breathe - it's generally only a concern if you notice other signs (poops, fluffed, etc.) or if the tail is bobbing more than a cm or so.

    Birds generally bob their tails after strenuous activity like flying - much like a person huffing to catch their breath after a sprint. Should be nothing to worry about.
