Brown Spots

My love bird is getting brown spots that look like freckles on its beak. What does this indicate?

Spots on bird's beak

These could be a number of things. Trauma, normal discoloration, blood spots, infection, etc. You should have your bird examined by an avian veterinarian.

Not sure what this may mean, and it would be a good idea to make an appointment with an Avian Vet in your area and see what they have to say. It is unusual that beak would be changing color at all and spots may indicate a problem.

Birds need to have an annual checkup with an Avian vet, so if it has been a year or longer since your last visit, then this is the time to have bird checked out for infections or any other problems that may be showing up.

Let us know what the vet had to say, and thank you much for writing.
