Today something very strange happened. Manu (about 4 months old) was sitting happily on my shoulder, before suddenly freaking out. He squawked like he was in pain and flapped about, flying to the ground after a few seconds, and then completely calming down. Seconds later he was back to normal, completely happy again. He’s never done this before.

Any ideas what this was or what might’ve caused it? There was nothing to cause it, as far as I’m aware.

This happens with my tiels all the time, so it doesn't seem strange to me. Their senses are different than ours, so they may see or sense things we aren't aware of. I don't like it, because if one freaks out, usually the other two do as well. Sometimes they will act so crazy that they fly into things and I'm terrified they will get hurt. Sometimes it takes quite awhile before they calm down. I never know what causes it either... I can only say it happens to my birds, so it's probably not unusual.
