You didnt include allot of detail as to your bird's situation.

You said you're away on the boat? Does this mean you're out on the water and took the bird with you? Or you just go out on the boat for the day come home and find your bird vomited?

Did this start after your outtings on the boat?
Can you tell if the bird is eating properly? Clean his papers daily to ensure he's eating, especially if he's vomiting.

It's highly possible your bird got a hold of something toxic. Which is serious.

If the bird is out on the boat with you (as I know some people who take thier birds everywhere, even on the boat)animals can get motion sickness as well.

My Grey threw up after an hour and a half long car ride home from the aviary when we bought her. My vet said, after blood work and exam, that it was merely motion sickness from the long ride. That she was fine. She hasnt vomited since.

This is why I ask, did your bird go with you on the boat?

Either way, I would highly suggest that your have the bird seen by an avian vet to ensure that he is healthy. Possibly get blood work done as well. Birds need a yearly exam to have a long, happy, healthy life.

I wish you luck!

Sick bird vomiting
by: Tracie

I am sorry your bird is sick. Dr B has not been answering questions quickly, it has been over a week since he answered any questions. You do not have that kind of time. You need to Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird and prescribe a treatment.
