Bird picking wing until bleeding

There is something that is causing your bird to pick that spot. You will need to Find an Avian Vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.

In case the bird is picking other areas, please read our Feather Damaging Behavior article that was written by an avian vet.
