My mallard duck keeps quacking, what I perceive to be, painfully, while turning around in circles trying to bite an itch on her tail feathers?

I thought it was cute at first but then realized it was a symptom of something! I know it's been along time since this original post but it would be great to know the outcome

Your bird could have a parasite or infection in that area. You'll have to take him to be examined by an Avian Vet in your driving area. Do not take him to regular dog and cat vet unless they have an avian vet on staff because they don't know what they're doing with birds.

Let us know what avian vet has to say and thanks for writing,
