(Cartersville, GA)

My 14 year old Blue and gold macaws has devloped a small pinkish red bump in the white part of his face. He has no other symptoms but it still worries me. Nothing has changed in is environment except that i have started letting him sit on his perch outside now that the weather is nice and he really loves it.

Dr. B answered this same question for another Macaw owner.

Macaws commonly have allergies and they sometimes present with these red bumps. It can be other things to so it is something that needs to be looked at by an avian veterinarian.
