Why does my cockatiel walk with his wings spread out?

I let my cockatiel out of his cage for a while and he spread out his wings and whistles.he has been doing this for the past days ive let him out. Is this a way to look bigger?or a way to get a mate. HELP ME PLEASE!


He's very happy :0) and they do .... do these kinda macho things when they are in love or looking toward a mate. .... Congrats ... your bird is happy and loving you!


They do this to show dominance or sometimes thats how they play. He also may be making a breeding call to attract a mate.


Its maybe it wants a mate?

buy a mate see what happens

or maybe his sick?


it is for bragging and showing dominance to get a mate. it only show that it is a male.
