Milky white susbance from beak

My 10 year old African Grey parrot began to have a milky white drip from his beak this morning...he wouldn't talk or move around...but after about an hour he began to act normal, talking etc. I put him in an outside aviary during the day, but I change the food and water before I put him...could it be too hot for him outside? It's very hot here this summer (Georgia) The only avian vets are in Atlanta, and I live 50 miles away, I'm a senior citizen and I have cancer and can't drive so I have no way to get there. Could you tell me what to do? I don't know wat to do wihtout my Henry...

Keep birds inside in 90+ weather
by: The Avian Vet

This could be heat related. If it is 90 or higher, then he needs to stay inside. It could also be caused by a toxin that your bird ate. Does he have access to plants? If this continues, then you need to make a trip to the veterinarian.
