My beautiful yellow pearl cockatiel died yesterday. I found her at the bottom of her cage with her wings fully extended,and a small amount of blood in her beak(mouth). A little spray of blood was also on the wall. She was eleven years old ,and we are heartbroken. We can't figure out why she died. Any ideas?

I'm sorry.
Can vets do autopsies?

keep the dead bird in a plastic sack and place in refirgerator. A local vet can answer your question, and most of us feel better knowing.

No freezer, right?
Thanks for the advice . We have already buried her. We did think of the necropsy, but my we decided against it. She appeared normal up until her death except for an occasional sneeze. I have always rushed my birds to the vet at the first sign of illness, but she seemed well. Just goes to show you how well birds can mask illness. Thanks again, Don

From your description of the scene, it could have been a traumatic injury death. Perhaps she suffered a night fright, flew into the back of the cage and broke her neck.
I'm sorry for your loss.  ...
