My orange factor canary has a big bloody scab/sore on his neck, what is it?

He's acting fine, eating good, and bouncy around, and singing, but I am worried about him. He is very old. What could this be? Could it be bird mites?

Big bloody scab on neck
by: Tracie

If it just suddenly appeared, then the bird injured itself somehow. If you have other birds it interacts with, it could be that another bird injured it.

The danger is infection. I would take the bird to an avian vet for an exam, and possibly get a prescription for a bird safe antibiotic just in case.
