Most birds have large eyes and little to no eye muscles, so to look in different directions, they have to move their whole head. It results in a lot of head bobbing.

Brother and sister out at hack

Timmons birds? :D I see lots of pics of them on facebook they are so lovely

Yep! If all goes well with the hack then I’ll be flying the male this season :) They’re such sweethearts, and apparently the male has been a total spitfire during the hack, chasing doves all day lol. I’ve been visiting them at least once a week since they were just a few days old. Its been really neat to watch them grow up and observe the training process
