She is acting weak suddenly and clicking when she breathes. Like panting. But she's not hot or anything. It's almost 10 pm and we have no vets nearby. she keeps closing her eyes too. What do I do? when she speaks it comes out all muffled. she keeps trying to cuddle close to me

YOur bird is in serious distress, can you find an emergency vet?
Clicking is a cough, a respiratory infection, pneumonia etc...

Please stay calm and find a 24/7 vet or emg avian vet. If you have oxygen put the bird on oxygen until you can locate a vet.

If this is a life threatening situation (sounds like it) even a non-avian emergency vet is better than nothing. They will at least have and incubator and oxygen.

Regular vet will have oxygen. Get him there and we can discuss later.

Can you try and wrap her in a towel to keep her warm? I am looking for a vet for you too.

Keep the bird warm 85-87 deg. If you have some quart milk containers, heat them in microwave and wrap in towels and put bird in travel carrier when you head to vet, if two people hold on lap with warming devices.
