I have an Amazon Green Cheek and noticed today that she has two bald patches on her head. The feather are red, she does not pick her feathers and does not seem to be moulting elsewhere.

She is about 14 years old.

Please take your bird to an avian vet for an examination. Since a bird can not pluck feathers on it's head, there is probably a health issue or nutritional problem.
