My African Grey's enlarged dark nostrils

by Sereena

I noticed today that my African Grey's nostrils are enlarged and darker than usual. She has been spending a majority of her time outside, as the weather is quite lovely and she enjoys it very much. Her behavior is normal, as well as her eating patterns. Is this a cause for alarm?

This could be a cause for concern. Enlarged nostrils could mean there is an infection. Or not. I recommend that birds be seen annually for well-bird check ups and vaccines. If your has not been recently, it is time to go now. If there is nothing wrong, at least you will know. If there is, then you get to catch it early before it becomes serious.
