Molting bare skin around neck and back of head

I believe one of my cockatiels is molting but has bare skin around the neck and back of head. I have a friend that says hers used to look worse then that, is this normal? It has been very hot and there may have been some irritants in the house for a time as well. All other behavior seems fine so far, I noticed the bare areas starting about two weeks ago.

This is not normal. You should have your bird examined by an avian veterinarian.
