Yellow Nape Amazon having a snack

my amazon yellow nape is 30 and instead of sleeping standing up like he always has he tries to hunker down. He also falls off his cage every now and again. We don't have an aviary vet in town so I'm just wanting to get some ideas on normal/abnormal behavior. Other than that he eats well, plays hard talks/sings all the time and seems happy.

Thank you so much.

Similar problem with Captain
by: Jim

My 32 yr old nape is in similar situation, but he still perches. Vet thinks he may have arthritis or gout!? Otherwise seems healthy. Did you find anything more out?

Bird falling off things
by: Tracie

Dr B can not tell without examining your bird, sorry. It is impossible to diagnose without an examination. Your bird could have an infection, it could be bacterial, it could be viral. Your bird could have any number of things wrong, so you will need to make an in person visit with an avian vet.

Please Find an Avian Vet soon, even if you have to drive a few hours to get to one. In the mean time, move all the perches down low, so it won't have far to fall, and move the water bottle and food dish down low also.
