Bird w/cyst thingy
Hi. About 2.5 weeks ago we found a featherless baby bird at the base of a tree. After waiting about 8 hours to see if his mother would return we took him home and put him in an incubator. Kevin, the bird, has done well since. His tail feathers just came in. But yesterday he developed a lump/cyst under his right wing (see pic). If I didn't know better I'd say it looks like another crop...strange. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
