If he has been eating a LOT of fresh fruit, the watery stool (technically polyuria, since the liquid in it is the urine portion) may be normal. However, it can also signal disease. My gcc eats a ton of fresh food and is very picky with his dry mix (I feed a mixture of a seed mix with pellets. Pellets are technically better nutrition, but a bird that has been eating seed may be difficult to convert, I've not been successful). My bird has polyuria all the time because of the high proportion of fresh food he consumes. But my vet did a stool exam and culture before deciding it was benign. If your bird shows any signs of illness you'll want to see the avian vet.
