Default soft clicking sound?

I heard it when he was playing and nibbles on my fingers
What does this soft clicking sound mean my budgie seems to make with his throat?

This could be him grinding his beak.. if it is then that is normal and it means he is content and happy

yes That is what I would say alsothey sit and grind away when they are happy and content and being smoochie. Or it could be the other sound mine makes when he plays with me , he nibbles and bobs his head up and down pretending to be the boss

If it sounds like a crunching, then your budgie is grinding his little beak and he is content. If it sounds more like an intermittent clicking, (I liken it to 'clucking' ) then he's likely also content but the mechanism is different in that the noise comes from the throat rather than the beak. Think of it like a cat purring, but this is more of a clicky-sounding chirp.

Now one thing we have to be aware of is any clicking that corresponds to the breathing. If on each breath, a budgie clicks, squeaks or makes any other sort of noise, then it could be the beginnings of a respiratory infection and an avian vet visit would be in order. I'm only mentioning this so that members do not potentially interpret all clicking noises as being normal, not that I think anything is wrong with your budgie.
