Question Mark What does foot stomping mean?

My little cockatiel boy (I think) has been very sexually active, I've read this is normal for his puberty behavior, he is just 9 months old. But he has started this little rapid dancing, stomping thing. It almost worries me,... is this a normal behavior? He almost acts as if he can't control it sometimes.

As far as I am aware, no, this is not a normal behaviour and could indicate an underlying problem. Has he been checked out by a vet recently?

I had a few males that did this. He'd stomp, hop, and sing. Mine usually did it to impress a female though. Or maybe even what he's stomping on makes a sound that is appealing to him. I had on cockatiel to liked to open his mouth, beak to the table and walk while licking the table lol. They can do some weird things sometimes.

Mine do it as well, they like the sound their leg bands make when tapped against their cage or perches :P
