It is a wide spread disease caused by an organism called Chlamidia psittaci.
The transmission of Psittacosis is primarily by inhalation of infected
dust from droppings or feathers and is enhanced by close contact with sick
birds that are shedding the organism.

Please. Educate yourself about Parrots and Psittacosis.
I urge you to notice the signs.

Some birds may show general "sick" symptoms..
Lack of appetite. weight loss, depression, listlessness, watery green droppings
discharge from eyes or nares or even sudden death. Many birds carry the
Chlamydial organism but do not show any signs of the disease under stable
conditions..... If your parrot changes in any way. CALL YOUR AVIAN VET.......
