Sometimes birds sneeze just to clear their nares. Are the sneezes dry?

That is great progress.

When the bird sneezes, is there any discharge. Do you near any clicking or other noises when the bird breathes?

Is there an avian vet in your area?

No there is not a avian vet that i know of.
Um but there are no clicking noises after the sneeze but he does clean it with his foot afterwards.

I wonder if he is just trying to clean out some debris, dust or something, or if he has an infection. It is a good sign that there is no discharge or clicking noise, but, still, it is difficult to say.
