saliva looks yellow.

Its usually creamy white.

he did it again then shook and seeds flew everywhere
 
this would likely need a vet visit
Behavioral regurge doesn't contain undigested food ( as far as I know)
 
Yes agree with above.
Doesn’t sound right. I would make tracks to teh vet.
 
Even though it might just be typical regurge, any time a parrot exhibits new and unexplainable behavior it pays to visit your CAV. See if you can capture some of the 'saliva' to show to the vet.
