    Senegal sexually frusterated?

    I think my Senegal Risa may be sexually frustrated, but I'm not sure

    She does this thing where she tenses up, hold her wings out a little, shakes her head and makes thing squeeky noise. At first I thought she might have an itchy beak. Her feet get warm when this happens too. She has also been kind of grumpy lately as well, which is my main concern.

    I keep referring to Risa as a she, but we don't have her/him/? sexed.

    does this sound like a mating dance type of thing? What's the best way to get my bird back to its normal happy self? I know that it is said to ignore it, and I do, but she still keeps doing it.

    Don't have a Senegal but my single female tiel puts her crestback, crouches down, keeps her wings close to her body & cheep-cheeps when she has hopes of my mating with her. And that happens when I'm doing dishes at the sink, not when I'm even petting her.

    This is common. Just let him/her work it out on their own. Don't encourage or discourage it because it's natural. Chiquita went threw a phase like that, I just ignored it until he stopped.
