Amazon Owners what is this behaviour

Rocky occasionally displays this behaviour, not sure how often he does it to others but every now and then he does it to me, this video is NOT Rocky it's just the only one I have found that sort of shows it. Havn't got it on video myself.

He is inside his cage when he does this and like in the video he sorts of jigs, flares his tail and eye pinns, he will spread his wings out and flap them, bites the bars and eye pines then looses and shakes his head, then he hangs upsidedown spreads his wings out then brings them in around him, spreads them out and head flicks.

It sounds like playing, or dancing 'zons seem to do that, it'll often be accompanied by singing or talking

It does seem like hes playing, My friends amazon did a similar thing but instead of being upsidedown she would hang from the top by her beak, spread out her wings a bit and grab her feet together and shake them up and down.

Though I do know with amazons if they fluff up, spread their tail and pin their eyes its a sign of agression, or just a warning to stay back, dont touch me. But yours seems more like playing, sonce they can pin their eyes when they want.
