There are many possibilities that it could be. A veterinarian is your best option. That costs money you may not have or want to spend. Consider putting the bird on antibiotics. I recommend tetracycline.'

Check the throat for an obstruction.

Update. Eating and drinking! She was walking around the house. Looks much better but I'll feel better if she is still strong in the morning.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
