wet sneezes and breathing sounds
My quaker parrot is about 4 months old and is displaying some strange symptoms. Lately I have noticed that the area of feathers around one of his nostrils is wet from sneezing (I am assuming).
He is a big parrot for his species and his wings are clipped so that he can still fly a bit. Currently when he flies and lands on my shoulder, he is breathing hard like it took a lot of effort to get his big body moving, and his breathing sounds like a little whistle.
It is winter here in Michigan, and I am just wondering if maybe my little guy has a cold. Thanks for any insight.
