How to differentiate between African grey parrot regurgitation and Vomiting?

Hi, my African grey parrot is 4 years old and these days I’ve noticed that half an hour after eating her food, she is taking out a few food mixed with saliva and putting it in her food bowl. she’s normal after that. And while spitting the food she is carefully spitting in a place she’s not creating any mess by spitting here and there or on her body. whats happening to her?



If she seems to be fine otherwise, this is most likely hormonal behavior. If you are concerned that she is ill, you should take her to an avian vet.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
