That sounds like beak grinding. If your GCC is sitting with eyes closed or sleepy eyed and that beak is making all kinds of noise. When they are happy they regurgitate, but not as obviously as a Sun or Nandy conure. GCC open their beaks and look as if they are going to belch. And that is it. Any other times, or excessively, take that bird to the vet.

Thankyou so much!!
I notice the note about a bubbles in the poop,I noticed today that the one she had was a little runny and had a little bubble in it,very small,but there was one,do you think maybe I should just try changing her diet,well,her food,we give her alot of attention and fresh fruts and so on so forth,I just get a little nervous sometimes,and how often is it good for a conure to sneeze?
Im just rather curious,thank-you. :-)

Green Cheek possibly sick
by: Tracie

Hello Meaghan,

This sounds like normal behavior to me. Birds will bring stuff up from their crop and chew it when they are content. Our Green Cheeked Conures love to do this while sitting on our shoulder.

I am glad you are paying attention to your bird's behavior. You are a good parront. :-)
