noise coming from parrots chest

(Tas, Australia)

Hi, This morning my bird accidently flew into the shower and got really wet and was quite panicked. He was sitting on my shoulder later and when he would breath i could hear a noise in his breathing kind of like rattling not sure how to describe.....Could he have gotten water in his lungs? And if so is this dangerous for him?

Noise coming from bird's chest

Dr B has not answered questions in quite a while, he may be gone for the holiday. Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird, because you should not be hearing noise when it breaths. You can't wait a week or more to find out.

Is it possible that it landed hard or something and could have broken bones? Birds have hollow bones, so if the bird ran into the shower wall or something, then it could be very serious.
