Black Specks on skin

My 6 year old lutino cockatiel has black specks on her skin, could they be mites? But there's no other sign of mites I don't see them on the cage or her brother Taffy. The specks are everywhere on her, her legs, around her butt, even on her shoulders and on her wings. The specks only appeared on her skin. Help please.

Are the spots moving? If not, then it is probably not mites. I recommend that you have her looked at by an avian veterinarian.
