My cockatiel is wiggling

Hi guys, recently I noticed my cockatiel wiggling her head, sort of like a wave, usually after eating. It is not like a normal head bobbing. Is this common in Cockatiels? Is there anything I should do? Thanks in advance

Sorry, I can’t be of help here. My cockatiels don’t do this behavior.

It kind of sounds like she's adjusting her crop. Could you get a video to show us?

Sorry, I tried many times but it's very short, I cannot take out my phone quick enough to film her. From what I observed and what I know, her crop adjustment looks more.like a yawn, I'm not sure.

Is it left to right? Up to down? Is there anything that triggers it?
