You should stop giving the bird corn - all corn in US is genetically modified and is contaminated with fungus.

This is a very serious issue especially if he is vomiting up other food. This points to some kind of infection or other physical problem. Only an Avian Vet can exam, diagnose and treat your bird. They are the only vets licensed and trained to do so. Dog and cat vets are not licensed to treat birds and will usually make the wrong diagnosis and give the wrong dosages of meds, so find an avian vet so your bird can be properly examined.

I suggest you do not delay having your bird examined because if he is vomiting up other undigested food, then he is sick and there is no time to wait.

My Quaker loves kernels of corn too. She picks them up and breaks the outside and eats the pulp and tosses the rest (almost like shelling a seed). Instead of giving yours the whole kernel, pinch it open and give him only the pulp. Is this the only thing he "vomits" up? Not sure if he's vomiting or regurgitating but you don't want him to possibly choke on the corn.
