So it was around 10:30am and my bird was chill, it was fine sat next to me on a perch, very tame and lovely, but he started freaking out for no reason and flew into at least 3 walls and now it's bleeding from the image you
can see here, I'm not sure what to do, I've put water on the injury and hope that it isn't infected, but I really do not know what to do, It is around 18 weeks, male and it's name is Snape like from harry potter urgent care is needed
Thank you!

It’s good the bleeding has stopped but it’s hard to say if it’s serious or not just from a description and photos, a vet check is always the best option after an injury.

Thank you for your help, it is much appreciated I will get him checked out as soon as possible, he's still able to fly and seems happy so doesn't seem too serious but I will get him checked out just for good measures, thank you for your help once again.

In future if your bird is bleeding you want to stop the bleeding by using something such as plain flour, you grab a good pinch and hold it firmly but gently on the wound. Water can make it difficult for the blood to clot.
