ringneck flying awkwardly, seems confused
(ft worth, tx)
Today I came home and my female ringneck was exhibiting odd behavior. She is usually an excellent flier and very alert (not hand tame at all), but today she seemed lethargic and when trying to fly, looked as if she was "heavy" - couldn't get any lift and was flying awkwardly. Also, she seemed confused. When trying to climb up the cage after taking a dive to the bottom, it took her a while to figure things out. I towelled her and she didn't seem to have any overt injuries: eyes seemed normal, wings in good shape, abdomen was not distended. The only unusual thing of note was what looked to be a small moist spot over one nare. No blood, no scrape... like maybe a little lymph or something - odd. Before I get all panicked and run for the vet, I thought I would run it by you to see if anything came to mind.
Your time and expertise are VERY much appreciated
