Bird with cut above eye

The main concern is infection. It would be best to have an avian vet check the injury and prescribe an antibiotic to prevent infection.

Whatever you do, do not put any over the counter creams on the bird. They are often toxic, get spread on other feathers when preening and ingested by the bird.
