[*]Not long ago, lead poisoning was the most common metal poisoning in pet birds, but thanks to increased awareness of the human health problems caused by lead, its use in the home has been significantly reduced.

Sources of lead that bird owners should be aware of are lead-based paints (including the powder coating on many imported bird cages), the foil wrap on some champagne and wine bottles, curtain weights, bells with lead clappers, imported bird toys (I recommend only buying all natural, un-dyed bird toys made in the U.S.), and stained glass.

Symptoms of lead poisoning in birds include depression, weakness, loss of appetite, weight loss, regurgitation or vomiting, diarrhea, excessive thirst and urination, hemoglobinuria (the presence of hemoglobin in the urine), and seizures.
