Lovebird Developed a Bump on Face Next To Beak
Lovebird with bump on face
Our Peach-Faced Lovebird had developed a pronounced bump on his face just to the side of the upper part of his beak and below his eye. In the area where this bump developed, we had noticed for a long time that the area of feathers in that spot had turned partially white, looked like he had a small white spot on his face.
He is otherwise in good health, appetite, behavior, and activity level all seem normal. He must find it irritating as it appears that he is rubbing it on his perch sticks as some days it seems more irritated than others. We are attaching a photo to help you understand what we are describing.
We live in the northeast and it is winter...if possible we would like to avoid having to take him to the vet right now and risk him getting a chill during the transportation process. We would greatly appreciate whatever information you can share with us based on our description and photo. Many thanks!
