Bird's Nares
by: Tracie

Hello Darlene,

I tend to think that if the avian vet gave your bird a clean bill of health, that maybe his nares just have some color in them.

If you can see that there is really something in there, I would call the vet you took him to and ask him. If you didn't take your bird to an avian vet, you might want to look for another vet.

I hope all is well, Tracie
