Fleas don't get on birds
by: The Vet

Fleas do not get on parrots. If you see bugs ON your bird it is probably mites. If they are fleas, and not on your bird, then they came from some other pet.

Treating fleas is complicated - You need to treat inside, outside and your pet. For dogs and cats use Frontline. Treat your house with something recommended by you dog/cat vet, and treat outside with something recommended by an exterminator.

For treatment of mites on your bird, see an avian veterinarian for a prescribed medication called ivermectin.
