i'm so glad to hear that your cockatiel came back and is now safe and sound with you again!!

my cockatiels also like to hang upside down and spread their wings out, and they look quite silly when they do so. i've heard that they do this when they're feeling content and playful, when they're stretching out their wings for exercise, or when they are trying to protect their cage. all in all, this is a normal cockatiel behaviour.

If you observe birds in the wild you will notice they do this often to reach seeds and flowers they want so I think it stems from their natural instincts/ abilities. My two also do it often as if you encourage it they did it even more.
