Sighing Noise when Stretching

by Darci

Hello I was wondering if it is normal for a bird to let out "sigh" like noises during stretching? I have noticed my Sun Conure almost always lets out a few sighs, almost like a "ugh" noise when she stretches her wing and leg out together. Is this something to worry about or is it normal for some sighing-type noise to be heard during a stretch?

Last I was at the vet was less than a month ago and apparently her breathing sounded normal so I'm wondering if I should be concerned, and if so what do you recommend be done? Thank you! BTW I never hear any other noises when she is breathing, other than after she flies she will pant a little bit because she doesn't fly often I think it takes the wind out of her.

This is probably a normal noise, especially if she only does it during the times you mentioned, but not at rest.
