Exclamation toxic plant help?

I have an umbrella plant in my budgie's play room because I read it was safe for them. However I just read today that it is on the toxic list so now I am confused as to which one it is? Lime ate part of a leaf of the plant a few days ago... He is acting completely normal which makes me feel better but still I am worried. I feel awful this even happened in the first place. Any advice would help thanks

If your budgie is showing no signs of being ill at this time and it's been a few days already then he will probably be just fine.

However, Scheffelera (umbrella plant) is considered to be TOXIC and I would recommend you remove it from the room where you keep your budgie.

Anytime you are in doubt - the best thing you can do is leave it out.

Thanks for the reply! I removed the plant right away and am hoping he will be fine. I read one article that said scheffelera was safe but I should have done more research...from now on I will be much more careful
