My bird just did this! I was scratching her neck and she was really enjoying it and she kept turning her head so that I was scratch her ear and when I started scratching her ear she opens her mouth but doesnt sqwauk. And she's a cockatiel.

There is no way to tell what is wrong with your bird without a physical examination. Please take your bird to see an avian vet for an exam and vaccination. It is likely your bird has something wrong for it to be acting this way.

If you need help finding an avian vet, you can look on our Find an Avian Vet page.
