Odd things covering bird's nostrils.

Our galah cockatoo has these lumps growing over it's nostrils. These lumps can be pulled off, but they grow back. It has had this ever since we got it, do you know what it is?

Lumps on nares

You should have these lumps looked at by an avian veterinarian. The lumps should be biopsied to determine what they are.

This is serious, and you need to take your bird to an Avian Vet ONLY in your driving area as quickly as is possible. This could be a fungal infection, bacterial infection or a parasite. Whatever it is, an Avian Vet will have to diagnose it and then treat it. It cannot be treated without knowing what it is, and only an avian vet can diagnose and treat birds.

Move quickly on this because if this ever completely covers bird's nostrils, she can die from suffocation so move quickly.
