Default Tiny squeak noise when breathing?

Hello!
I have a white budgie who seems totally fine, but earlier today I heard a super tiny squeak while he was breathing. It's so quiet I'm not sure how I even heard it. I listened to him again a little later and I didn't hear it. Could this be the beginning of a cold or respiratory infection? Or am I over reacting? I just want to catch it super early if it is, so antibiotics have the best chance of working. I am in a bit of a money bind, but I do have a vet credit card I can use if need be. I just want to hear a couple opinions, but I'll probably take him to the vet anyways in the next couple of days (ride issues) Any thoughts are appreciated!

Default He should be fine

Hi! I don't think that is something to worry about, especially if you only heard the sound once or twice. If your bird shows any sign of pain while breathing then you should take him to the vet. Other than that, it might have just been a little chirp that sounded like a squeak.

Is your budgie eating, drinking and pooping normally?
Is he as active as usual or is he fluffed up and lethargic?

If you only heard one tiny squeak and he has no other symptoms of illness, then chances are it was simply a little chirp.

Please let us know how he's doing.

I agree with FaeryBee but keep a close watch as you should not be hearing any sound as the bird breathes, a chirp or a squeak is different. Also observe if you think that the bird is breathing faster than normal when at rest. See your vet if you feel the bird is not quite right as things can escalate quickly.

Thank you everyone! I appreciate the insight! He does seem to be fine otherwise I havn't heard it again since yesterday but I'm keeping a very close eye on him. If his behavior changes at all I will definetely rush him to the vet
