My parrot has a bump on his back

My blue front amazon has a bump on his back..The bump is not hard but feels like an air pocket? He/she is about 30 yrs..I have had Baby for about 26 years...I can touch and push on this bump and it does not seem to hurt or bother him..He has never been sick or had any injuries...The bump seemed to go down some earlier this year when he was molting..Just wondering..thanks

Bump on bird

You need to take him in to see an avian veterinarian. He needs to be screened for geriatric problems as well as determine what this "bump" is. Bird's need to be seen annually by an experienced avian veterinarian, and even more often when they are over 25 years old.
