White-ish yellow lumps on budgie's toes

Bumps on budgie toe
My 11 month old English budgie has odd "bumps" on her toes of one foot.
Two lumps as shown in pics, and one on a back toe on the same foot.
White-ish yellow in color. Have the initial appearance of crystals.
I gently poked the back toe lump - doesn't "seem" painful, moves at base, might be fluid or jelly filled ... like a huge plugged pore...
Toe joint itself is fine.
Those lumps weren't there in April. Looked at pics taken in July, and lumps are there, but smaller.
They don't look like what I researched mites are supposed to look like. No dry flaky skin, no thorny skin, no tiny holes the mites made ...
I found a pic on the web for mites on feet and beak and it doesn't look like these.
Never seen this before.
What is this? Something to be concerned about?
