I just got this Indian Ring Neck from a friend who could no longer keep him about 3 weeks ago. He is a very nice bird but loves to grab things with his beek. I have never owned a bird before and I am really in love with this little guy. However, I noticed him making "gagging" faces the other day. He literally wouldn't make any noise but would stick his tongue out and fluff up his wings like he was chocking. I freaked out and immediatly called the vet. Well while I was on the phone with the vet I heard him scretch and thenhe seemed fine. The vet told me that as long as he was eating okay and drinking okay they thought that he would be fine. , still being worried, have watched him non stop lol. I have noticed that when he sticks his tonuge out to lick my hand the back of his tongue looks funny. I even thought that I may have seen blood but haven't seen any blood for sure bc he moves to quickly. He seems fine and playful and is eatting well and everything but I am still worried. I wish that I could find some pictures of what the tongue looks like.
