Yes, birds can get constipated too. To help, you should feed it any kind of green food like lettuce or an apple. Freshly grated carrots can also help to do the trick. Some causes can be overeating or dehydration. If it doesn't improve you should bring it to the vet to get it professionally checked for more serious problems.

Birds do not get constipated in the same way that humans do. Failure to poop indicates a failure to eat or drink. Make sure that his water is fresh and accessible to him, and make sure that his food is fresh and palatable.

Birds do indeed at times have trouble pooping. Usually this is because of diet or internal parasites. If they can they might eat different things or even supplement their diet with material that helps in digestion or removal of said parasites.

In rare cases birds will have constipation. This is due to stomach worms. Giving any fruits especially apple and greens, finely chopped carrot with sugar will be the treatment.
