Cockatiel just started making the weird noise

I have had my cockatiel for about nine years, and this morning when I woke up he was making a noise i never have heard him make before, kinda like a whiney noise, but he can still chrip and squak and whistle normally, so I'm not sure if I should be too worried, the noise itself doesnt sound good at all. I can't think of any noise he be trying to mimic, please help, im deeply concerned!

I suggest that you go ahead and make an appointment with your avian vet for tomorrow, then watch the bird closely today. If it quits making the noise and seems fine, you can always cancel the appt.

Of course, if the bird displays behavior that indicates it is sick, then take the bird today if possible and don't wait until tomorrow.
