Unusual Dark Lumps Above Cere/Nostrils
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
I have a Double-Yellow Headed Amazon Parrot. I've taken her to the local avian vet a couple times. She's in good health, although she's low on calcium and I can't get her to try anything new.
Also, lately I've noticed that there are two dark bulb-like lumps that are on her beak, I believe this area is called the Cere.
I've asked my vet to look at it, but they were not sure what it was. I am was hoping to get more information about it, because I fear something may be wrong.
Otherwise, she is active and playful as usual. She also eats regularly.
My two questions are:
Is there something I can do to help her with her calcium (and/or other needed nutritional intake)
What are these lumps, are they common?
