Poop cluster on bird's vent
by: Tracie

This can sometimes mean your bird has an infection of some sort or is sick. I would put a shallow dish with water in the cage to encourage the bird to bathe. If the bird removes the poop and more does not collect, then all is probably well.

Make sure you remove the water after a couple of hours. Birds that drink and bathe in bacteria water left in dishes often end up with bacterial infections. This is why avian vets suggest Lixit water bottles for birds to drink from.

If your bird is sitting fluffed up, not eating or drinking normally, then don't wait to Find an Avian Vet to take your bird to.
