Maui voluntarily did a flying lap

This evening the birds have been quite active. Manzi running around getting into trouble, flying lots of laps around my apartment. Maui has also been active running around on the cage. At one point, Manzi and Maui were both running around on the cage, when Manzi took off and landed on his perch in the living room. A couple seconds Maui ran to the edge of the cage and took off too, towards the same perch. She almost seemed to have surprised herself because mid flight, she looked like, "Oh no, now where do I land!" Then she turned around and flew back to her cage.

Manzi often gets worked up and flies laps around my living area, but Maui's never done such a lap. The closest she comes to voluntary flight is when she wants to reach something really bad, and gets a bit too close to the edge, then stumbles and flies. It was really nice to see her get so worked up that she just took off! Maybe there is flying hope for her after all other than the nervous flights back to her cage when I send her off my hand.
