What are some signs of bleeding on the brain?
-------------------------

Blood in the ear canal, and/or brusing of the skin.

Keep in a cool environment until you can get to a vet if needed. The vet would prescribe the meds that Gary described above.

When Udo crashed into the window, it was obvious he was not OK. He was very woozy and had trouble walking and his flight was very erratic...he was on meds for swelling for about a week...but I definitely knew he was not right after the collision. Sounds like your bird didn't have as much damage, but I'd want to get to a vet asap. Good luck and hope he heals quickly.

I'll be keeping him in my thoughts. I know when Snowy flew into the wall(almost 2 years ago) he was kinda quiet and everything for the rest of the day.

Just got off the phone with the receptionist at the avian vet. They told me to bring Beanie in for a checkup. I'll see them at midday. :)

This morning Beanie is looking back to normal, though maybe a little quieter than usual. However, this might be because of the very rainy weather we have this morning.

Oh yeah, I'm also taking in Goblin and Pickpocket for rechecks.

Back from the vets! :)

Beanie has very minor soft tissue damage on his one wing - so slightly bruised. He can still fly so that's alright. His head is fine and as long as he is still eating and playing he should be alright!

He is a "little" overweight *ahem* at 107g! :eek:

Ok, Musk Lorikeets should weigh about 60g but Beanie is a lot larger than your average Musk. Still, he shouldn't weigh more than 80 - 90g!

So he is on a diet. It should help a lot now that his flights have grown back and he can actually fly (provided he doesn't fly into a door again).

Pickpocket is doing amazingly well! Goblin is doing better but is still underweight. She just needs time and some TLC.

So glad he's not seriously injured. Good job in getting him to the doctor.
