I would normally say that this sounds like a pneumonia or other respiratory problem. "star-gazing" isn't an on/off type thing. On the other hand, with your history, it is very possible that it is IBD or at least related.
Unfortunately nothing has changed in the past year as far as anti-mortem diagnoses of IBD. So all that you can do is perfect that husbandry, treat the symptoms and potentially diagnose a different cause for the current ailment. And as you know, quarantine, quarantine, quarantine. It's in your collection and as long as you have boids you'll have to keep things closed down.

Good luck,

Ian
