Amazon with a bald spot

My amazon has a spot where it's just her down feathers on the right side of her chest above her leg. Is she sick or is it seasonal? What can I do to help her?

What could be wrong?

Bird with bald spot
by: Tracie

Bald spots are not normal. Your bird is likely picking the feathers due to something under the skin bothering it. It could be an infection, an injury, a tumor or any number of things.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link 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.
