20 year old cockatoo becomes quiet

I highly recommend you make an appointment with an Avian Vet ONLY in your driving area because this quietness coupled with the "strange" noises point to some kind of physical issue. It could be an infection, organ problem or poisoning of some kind. There is no time to lose here and wish you'd already called an Avian Vet. No one on the internet can help you with a bird's physical problems because each bird has to be seen in person by an avian vet for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan to be made.Make sure he is seen by an avian vet only because dog and cat vets do not have a clue as to diagnosis and treatment for birds though they will make incorrect diagnosis and give incorrect meds and charge you a whole lot of money. birds have to be diagnosed and treated by an avian vet only because they are the only vets licensed and trained in this area of exotic animals.

Let us know what Avian Vet has to say, and we recommend yearly exams for all birds with an avian vet to catch infections or other physical issues before they bring the bird down.
