regurgitating or vomiting?

My lovebird has been regurgitating/vomiting. I have attached a video, and a picture of what is coming up. She is about 2-3 months old, and has recently fully transitioned from a seed/grain diet to a pellet diet. Does anyone know whether or not it is vomiting or regurgitation, and should I be concerned? She seems really lively otherwise, and doesnt seem to be getting any of it on herself. After this happenned, she proceeded to eat more pellets.

How often is she doing that? Is she doing that when she is near you, when she is by herself in her cage, when near certain objects?

She's successfully done it three times in the past five days, but i would say she attempts it daily. I haven't noticed her doing it before. I'm not sure if she does it alone, but she doesn't do it when she's around my parents. Most of the time she attempts it is when shes on or around my computer, though she has done it once while she was standing on my phone.

Don't we all have a love affair with technology?



(I couldn't resist a small joke... I bet Zara will be along for actual help soon!)

I'm thinking, that looks like regurgitating, but as your bird is eating the regurgitation, they shake their head (like when they eat veggies) and a bit flies out.
Vomiting, it would come straight out.

Just my thought based on that one video. If you are unsure a check up at the vet never hurts.


but i would say she attempts it daily.
In what way? Like she does the head bob, but doesn't shake her head?

I wonder if the phone, your parents and/or the computer just create some hormonal or feeding response from her and she then regurgitates.
If you are unsure of what is going on (regurgitation vs vomiting) then best to take to the vet for a check up.

I just saw the age, If this bird is only 2 months, I would take her to the vet and suspect vomiting.

My young bird started regurgitating at 3 months but it was more gentle looking.

She tries it but most of the time nothing comes out.

We're you able to get an appointment for her? I sure hope everything is alright. I didn't intend to be flippant, I'm sorry.
