Maya's been with me 4 weeks now (she's about 14 weeks old), and she's getting along great! There's one thing she does, however, that I don't understand.
Sometimes when I take her out in the morning, she spreads her wings (sometimes flapping), and makes short hissy noises while nibbling my finger or whatever perch she's standing on. I haven't noticed anything that might provoke her when it happens, and she's done it while in her cage as well.
Does anyone know what this means?

It's called "bat bird"..it basically is her saying "this is awesome and it's MINE!"

Sounds like "bat bird" to me, its a territorial thing, shes saying those are her things!
