Slight shiver of tail

Hello. So I have noticed that my IRN's tail shivers sometimes and I'm not sure if it's because of the cold or something else. She shivers even if she is perched on both legs or one, but not always (from what time I spend with her daily). My room temperature is somewhere between 23°C and 24°C.

I think she looks okay from what I can see, but if you have any doubts about her health, maybe get her checked by the vet, especially if she hasn’t been in a while.

I’ve watched the clips 5x now and I’m not sure what you’re seeing. She looks absolutely normal if a bit sleepy.

A lot of birds do shiver/shake their tails as a simple release of tension. It doesn’t indicate anything more than getting into a relaxed state.

Of concern would be if her rain was uncontrollable bobbing in huge bounces usually timed to her breathing and her head also bobbing. That usually indicates trauma/illness/pain.

She is beautiful. :)

Oh, I didn't know that birds relieve tension by shivering their tail. That's new information for me.
She doesn't do the huge bounces or bobs her head, so I guess that's a good thing.
I guess I have become a little bit paranoid since my previous bird died because of a freak accident and never showed any sign of distress.
Also, thanks for the response and the compliment :) all birds are beautiful :heart:
