Scarlet macaw

Can someone tell me how I can make sure that my Scarlet macaw has excessive saliva or not? I notice, he has saliva more then my Blue & Gold, but as far as his activities, he is doing just fine. Free flight every day with no problems, except after flying sometimes saliva come out of his mouth. BTW he is one year old. I would be greatly appreciate it if someone could tell me. Thanks in advance.

        The salivary glands in parrots is located around the base of the tongue, as well as in the soft palate in the roof of the mouth, near the back.  The tongue that we can see is typically dry.  If you find that the tongue is wet, there may be a medical reason for it, such as an irritation or inflammation in the mouth.
