Unhappy Open mouth breathing,

I just saw Sunny started to breathe with his mouth open.
My mom was vacuuming behind the cage, but this time the budgies were IN the cage ( Usually they are out and about )
And he was breathing with his mouth, no bobbing.
And then she stopped for a second, and after one second he calmed down and stopped.
Then the sound started in the kitchen of VVRRMMMM sound of vacumm and he started again.
After she stopped, he stopped.
And started to grind beaks with Bluey.

Does anyone have information?
I'm kind of scared

This is what Elvis did not too long ago. I took him to the vet and he was fine. Sounds like stress to me because he only did it when the vacuum was running, but I would wait until somebody that knows more comes along.

I've actually wondered about this myself. I've seen my birds do it in times of high stress, or when they are too hot.

I think the sound of the vaccum really scared him. My budgies do this sometimes when they hear the smoke alarm go off since they don't hear it too often, it is new and scary for them
Keep an eye on him

My male bird "limon" (means "lime") does the same when he gets excited or frightened...I was worried about him during the first days ı got him, but by time ı have observed that he just does it when he is under stress and it is a temporary act.

yea my birds do it too when they're scared! like after night frights or just when i give them a fright by accident. don't be too alarmed - unless its happening for no reason - then it could be a respiratory problem.
