Conure sounds stuffy

My green cheek conure was eating his pellet food one day like normal when all of a sudden he starts making a choking wheezy sound. I picked him up and he continued to make the sound for another minute or two. When he stopped his voice sounded stuffy. I thought maybe he stiffed up some pellet dust and that he would be ok and he wouldn't sound stuffy the next day.

He still sounds stuffy and I was wondering if I should take him to the vet or if I should wait awhile longer to see if his voice returns to normal? Has this happened to anyone before?
