Bird sneezing
by: Tracie

This is what Dr. B has told others that have written about their bird sneezing and picking their nares.

You should have him examined by an avian veterinarian and get him vaccinated for polyomavirus. The time to take you bird in is when he is well, this will give your veterinarian the opportunity to see what is normal for your bird. In this case the sneezing could be caused by something lodged in the nares. If left there, it can become a nidus for infection. Better to be safe than sorry.
