I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. If your other birds aren't showing signs of overheating, Bird Brain isn't likely to be overheated; instead, her panting is more likely to represent significant respiratory compromise such as might be seen with air sacculitis or pneumonia or compression of her air sacs and lungs by enlargement of coelomic (abdominal) organs or a coelomic effusion - free fluid in the coelomic cavity. Are there any other signs that might help localize the cause of her panting?
