I have a 10 month old blue front amazon parrot. He says many things and sings songs already. He mimicks every sound. He started "coughing" . Do birds cough, or is he mimicking?

  • If it sounds like a kid, it is probably mimicking............I had a Blue Front for years........I miss him so............

  • That is really cute if he is mimicking. Does someone in the house have a cough? I have no idea if birds cough.

  • Yes, He sounds like one of the kids. He is a crack up. I never had a bird before so I am not sure.

  • Have you looked to see if there is phlegm or anything in the birds throat? this can cause birds to cough although the bird could also be mimicking someone who is coughing

  • There is no phlegm in his nose or beak. How do you look down his throat?

  • You'd probably need a light. I'd probably take him to the vet to check that because none of my birds ever let me do anything like that.
