meally parrot

I just got a meally last week he's older. yesterday he started to scratch his head alot, and to day i gave him a misting bath and the scratching of the head hasn't stopped.
I live in florida and his cage is outside with an umbrella over half of cage. Should i worry?

Yes, if your bird continually scratches, you need to take the bird to your avian vet for a check up. Birds should visit the vet once a year for a check up anyway.

Your bird could have dry skin, be allergic to something, have an infection or a disease. The thing you do NOT want to do, is spend time treating something that is not wrong while the REAL problem gets worse.
