Alright,

We had another very successful Weekend with Moonbeam.

Saturday wasn't so active, she chose to stay up on her high perch where she usually sleeps so we left her alone. She just didn't seem active, maybe grumpy from molting.

Sunday was better and we had her out of her cage lots. She was perching and eating on our hands, did a couple shoulder sits and was chirping and active.

But again I have a few of questions:

When she is playing outside her cage she has a little play perch structure. She has gotten very comfortable and outside her cage if she gets scared she retreats back to her play structure. When she flies away from her play structure and lands on the carpet she sits there and chirps. I am trying to decide if she is angry or if she is playing. The chirps are very gentle and not screams or anything harsh. Is she playing or annoyed?

When we do practice finger perching she is comfortable if you move your finger from directly in front toward her, she steps up without any hesitation. I have noticed though that if you move your hand in from the side she is much more nervous. Is that a natural thing? Like a predator would come from the side? Just curious.

What is her field of vision? I think I read that they can see pretty close to 360. How can I tell if she is looking at me? I think its kind of obvious because she kind of puts her head at a slight angle and looks kind of side ways. Not totally sure.

BTW love the help and feedback you guys have been giving!

Good advice! Different perches that have a fluctuating diameter will also help with the overall heath of your birdie. It will promote blood circulation and give Moonbeam something to chew on as well. I've found that natural wood works best.
Also: never use sand perches, this will cause painful foot sores for your budgie.
Happy to hear she is becoming a part of the family!

Sandpaper perch covers should never be used but a sand perch is just fine for your budgie.
The perches shown in this link are ones I use and recommend:
