Default How to identify a seizure

Annie was being a little goofy this morning and was pecking at my finger when i went in to have her step up and she was on a rounded perch. she began to kinda wobble around, almost as if she lost her balance but it was a pretty steady movement, lunging forward and then back, as if she was going to almost fall off, and then she just stopped. she maintained balance on the perch, didn’t scream or even chirp, but was just a little weirdo.... some say this movement indicated seizures and i was just trying to get a second opinion. i live 4+ hours away from the closest avian vet, im in school so it’s not really my choice to be that far from one, but if you guys think it’s necessary, i’ll make the drive of course. i love my little baby annie. please let me know, multiple opinions are welcome, i would love to hear from as many people as possible as i’m very worried.

Seizures can be caused by many different things, some of which are nutritional, viral, physical injury, toxins etc. I can see why Annie's behavior would lead one to think it may have been a seizure. It is not uncommon to see a change in the behavior at the start of a seizure, then loss of muscle control and confusion. I used to have a cat that had seizures and I had a bird that had a brain tumor that had mild seizures. Did Annie recover quickly from what you saw?
