14 year old yellow-crowned female amazon noises
My 14 year old amazon has just started making odd vocalizations which last for one minute and sound like she's having a panic attack. I don't believe it is a seizure as she's not losing her perch and she reaches with her one leg to step up although she doesn't step up and seems too weak to do so. She's eating, drinking, pooping normally.
These episodes scare me and she does them when I'm around and out of the room so I don't think it's just an attention-getter. They seem to be happening more frequently. I do have an Avian Vet and will take her when I get home. Now, I'm at our cottage during Christmas vacation. She comes here regularly so it's not a new environment.
Could this just be a 'new trick'? Is it a 'nesting' phase she is going through? She doesn't have access to any box/paper etc to trigger this behaviour.
