hello

i have a congo african grey, holly, that does the same think you describe. i found out from my avian doctor that it is her form of affection for me. she said it is her in a mother type mode. holly's wings will drop and she makes a crying sound almost like a baby. since holly is older than 6 months, she also regurgitates food so she can feed me. i agree with linda have your bird checked out. good luck with your new baby, i know mine is a handful. she shows me something new everyday!!!!!

Sounds like possible baby bird moves and noises. I would have her examined by an Avian Vet ONLY in your area to make sure she's not incubating an infection. We encourage birds be examined at least once a year to make sure there are no problems going on we are not yet aware of, and so this visit would put your mind at ease.

Take her to only an Avian Vet because they are the only vets licensed and trained in the care of birds.

Thanks for writing,
Linda
