I've noticed that when my cockatiel finishes eating, he drinks water and after drinking water, he starts making these weird quick hiccup noises. Almost like he's exhaling water or something? It happens maybe 3 times a week, for 30 seconds and then goes away on its own each time. I've also been feeding him pellets soaked in warm water, because he won't have them any other way.

I'm wondering if maybe he's aspirating water a little because of the soaked pellets and then when he gulps water?

I've attached a youtube video here:

Does anyone know what this is?
