How terrible, I am so sorry for your loss.

The only way to for sure find out, is to take your bird to an avian vet for a necropsy. It sounds like your bird had a stroke, but what caused the stroke is still a mystery.

There are many toxic items in our homes, both things the bird can chew and fumes from Teflon, perfumes, gases etc. in the air can kill our birds. Please read our Toxic / Non-toxic for birds list if you have other birds or get another bird to make sure you do not accidentally allow something toxic in the environment.
