Can you film it? If it is a big change in how he is preening it could be something bothering him. It could also be normal preening. Molts are pretty fast paced for IRN, they can drop several body feathers in a day and he could simply be frustrated with himself.

If it is alarming you don't hesitate to have a vet look him over. Never hurts to rule out injuries.
