Hi there, folks, I've owned my African Brown Headed Parrot for 21-1/2 years now. I've noticed, twice, that he seems like he's regurgitating, but what he's regurgitating is something that appears to be slimy spit (like mucous). As it comes out of his beak, it looks like (excuse the description) a snot bubble. I've also noticed that he doesn't seem to be pooping a lot, but he's also been a very picky eater lately.

I give him a mix of nuts, fruits, and veggies. He always has clean water and a clean cage. He has toys in his cage and a chile-flavored cuttlebone. I just don't know what to think here. He still sings and chirps and doesn't act like there's anything out of the ordinary. Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? Thanks for replies!
