African grey losing voice

If you took your bird to an avian vet, and they did not find an infection, then it is possible it is doing this for attention. My mom's African grey imitated all kinds of things.

I am glad you are going back to the vet in a week though. Make sure you are going to a vet that has avian training and that they run tests to make sure it doesn't have an infection.
