Cockatiel dried blood around nose

I was looking at my pet cockatiel when I saw what looked like dried blood around her nose. I was curious as to what this was because I have never seen her seem sick or injured. She has also been sneezing a bit.

This is likely a sinus infection. You need to take her in immediately. Take her to see an avian veterinarian. Birds need to be seen annually for check ups and vaccines, too, to be sure they are healthy.
