My baby, Kaleo, was about 1 year old, and this morning, he was making a strange rhythmic peeping noise, and I took a video, picked him up, and he began to hyperventilate!! I took a video of that too, and put him back, with some millet and fresh water, as I had to go to school. I came back about 20 minutes ago and he died some time while I was at school. What could have caused this? What killed him?

I had to go to school this morning, but my budgie Kaleo was making odd noises. I took a couple videos and came home to him dead. Does anyone know what it was? https://youtu.be/DXzjsr38Hx0

Anna,

There is no way to know why Kaleo died without having a vet perform a necropsy.

He could have been ill for some time and masking the symptoms, he may have had a heart attack due to a congenital defect, he may have died from stress, etc.

I'm very sorry for your loss. If you would like to post a memorial or tribute for Kaleo in the In Memory section of the forum, please feel free to do so.

Fly high and free sweet boy; rest peacefully little Kaleo.

Please realize no one is going to be able to answer "Why" your budgie died.
The best anyone can do is guess.

He look's very healthy in the video but I have never heard mine make sound's like that. Maybe one of our very experienced folk's has. I am very sorry your beautiful little guy has gone so suddenly....

Thank you all. This was very sudden and I'd like to find out the cause to protect my other babies, but I understand it's very difficult.

Anna--I'm terribly sorry to hear of your sudden loss.

I understand you want to protect you other little ones, but with something this sudden, chances are that there's no "cure" and it isn't contagious--could have been a heart attack, stroke, or a masked condition.

Little Kaleo was a gorgeous budgie and although he wasn't with you for nearly long enough, his memory will live on with you forever.
Fly high and sleep sweet, Kaleo.

I would like to say that my first budgie made that noise... I took him to the vet and he was underweight and he had what sounded somewhat like pneumonia and he died two days later even with antibiotics. The vet was not completely sure what it was because the lungs were not as crackly as she would have expected with the symptoms. She told me that she didn't know if the budgie he was caged with would get sick but that if she wasn't sick now she would probably be okay because he had probably been sick for a really long time and she is. She also said he was smaller that normal so he may have been born with some kind of defect. This being said, I would keep as close an eye on the others as you can.

As healthy as he looks, it could be possible that something toxic affected
him severely. Birds have very sensitive respiratory systems and things
such as leaking gas, spray chemicals and various types of cookware,
some of the older non-stick can be very deadly in a short time. Remember how canaries were used in coal mines to protect workers
from mine gas. There are certainly many other things that can kill birds
quickly but he looked very good....although they are good a disguising
symptoms. A vet could possibly determine the cause of sudden but
not always. Sad that you lost your bud.

Rest in Peace, sweet handsome Kaleo. Keep his cute face and happy song close to your heart, and he will be with you forever. They leave us much too soon. I am so sorry for your loss. Especially sad when it is unexpected.
