Bump on macaw may be a blister
by: The Avian Vet

It looks like it could be a "blood blister" lie caused by an injury while playing. I cannot definitively diagnose this with just a picture and cannot legally give medical advice, so I recommend that you have this examined by an avian veterinarian for a proper diagnosis and treatment. If it is left untreated complications such as an infection can occur.

Blue and gooden macaw bump

Please take your macaw to an avian vet. It's impossible to tell what the problem is from your picture.

This looks like the result of an injury as in something in or around his cage. He will have to be taken to an Avian Vet ONLY in your driving area. Do not take to dog and cat vet because they are not licensed or trained in the care of birds and give incorrect diagnosis and incorrect dosages of meds.

Avian Vet will take a draw from the area and look at it under a microscope to see what kind of cells are in it.

Please do not delay because this can become very serious depending on what caused it.

Let us know what avian vet has to say and thanks for writing,
Linda
