crazy pionus

I have a maximillion pionus and when he is in his cage he puts his head back and swings his head around, and once we get him out, he will sit on the top of his cage perched low and then walk in circles around and around like he is looking for something. Is this normal, should I be concerned?

This could be some kind of seizure activity, and I strongly recommend you get him into be examined by an Avian Vet at your earliest convenience. Being in California, you should have no trouble finding an Avian Vet. Do not take him to a regular dog and cat vet because they are not licensed or trained in the diagnosis and treatment of birds and will do more harm than good.

Thanks for writing and let us know what the Avian Vet has to say,
