Bird suddenly died
by: Tracie

It is hard to say what happened. A necropsy would have told you what happened. It could have been that the bird breathed or chewed something toxic, or it could have had a disease or illness that it had been hiding for some time.

If you get another bird, please take the bird to an avian vet yearly for check ups. Be sure and Find an Avian Vet for your bird, because regular vets often accidentally kill birds due to lack of experience.
