Honey question… has your bird done this?

Hi. I have an Eclectus parrot. My boy flew onto the counter and I heard a pecking noise. He poked a dime sized hole into an unpasteurized honey container. He didn’t consume much but he had to have gotten some as he was pecking at the bottle. I called the vet and poison control number as I know that honey contains the spores that can cause botulism. I was told to monitor him for the next 24 hours and if he appears sick to bring him in to get the charcoal to absorb the honey. I’m really stressed. Has anyone had their feathery friend get into honey?

He seems fine. Preening. Eating. Walking around. Talking. Cuddling. I was told to watch for tiredness and weakness of legs/wings.
