Conure injured tongue

My conure recently came out his cage and started flying around and hit the wall and is now bleeding from his mouth, I believe he bit his tongue. Is there a way to stop the bleeding?

Conure bleeding

Hopefully your bird quit bleeding. There is not someone live 24/7 here to read and post questions and answers, sorry.

Please have a 24/7 emergency number on your fridge for an avian vet for times like this. Even if your avian vet isn't open 24/7, they usually give you an emergency number of someone who is.

I do not know how I would stop the bleeding because I don't think my bird would let me do anything with it's tongue, it would need to be sedated. Then, because their bones are hollow, I would want my bird examined to make sure there were not any internal injuries even if the bleeding did stop.
