Blue and hold macaw moving head up and down

It sounds as if he either has something stuck in his throat or is having problems breathing. Either way, he has to be taken to an Avian Vet ONLY in your driving area to be examined and see what the problem may be. Anytime birds have sudden changes in behavior, it usually points to an illness. Birds do not get over infections and other physical problems without the help of an avian vet. Do not take him to a dog and cat vet as they are not licensed or trained in the treatment of birds and make the problem worse with incorrect diagnosis and treatment.

Let us know what avian vet has to say and thanks for writing,
