I fed Josh some hibiscus parts & caught him croaking right before making stupid noises. I have never heard him make a sound other than the occasional “peep” after a bath.

After frantic searching to figure out if/why he was dying, I found little info other than the sound might be related to beak cleaning/clearing the throat. I don’t feed him hibiscus flowers often, so i’m guessing the stem & little prickly leaves tickled his throat.  Crisis averted.

oh this happend to us too! humom got so worried she was calling the vet and making me get in the carrier .. the vet said it just sounded like there were some extra noms in my mouth I was still swallowing. She felt better after but still looked skeptical. Overprotective humans. *sigh* we love you.
