Beautiful bird.
Once plucking behavior gets started it’s difficult to stop.
I would only use a cone of shame if the plucking became self mutilation.
As it stands now is only a small area.

I'm sorry for your loss. Just like us parrots are very sensitive to stress and change.

Feather destruction behavior is a challenge for all and not well understood or set answers. As stated once started is difficult to stop. And sometimes we just have to accept that, and you and yours are not alone in that
