Thanks Dr. D,

I am sorry that I didn't get back to you in time but I panicked before I received your response and tried to take Tweety to the 24 hr vet. He had a died in my hands before I could get to the car.

I am sorry to hear that you have lost your beloved bird. We usually consider lack of Calcium, Lead poisoning, atherosclerosis, acute trauma in birds who fell off his perch. I am sorry I could not assist you .
