Trust me its normal.
Matey is a four yr old male and each morning when I open the cage door for him, he flies out and does 4 or 5 laps around the kitchen.
It is the same nearly every morning 4 or 5 full speed laps around the kitchen.
at the same time he shrieks and chatters, so I know he is happy doing this.
Yes, he lands and pants for a few seconds. This bird does heaps of flying in the several hours a day he is out of his cage.
I am sure Matey is not out of condition. It's quite normal as far as I can tell.
