Hello,

Ive had my green cheek conure for about 6 years now. He is usually well grooms him self, has a mild problem with biting his tail, but its gotten better over the last year. My concern is he developed a dark spot on his right wing and im worried that it might be like a fungus and it might spread. Do you guys know what this might be, if its common? and how to treat it? attached are images . Thank you in advance! tempImagepaxSjk.png tempImageJVLKad.png IMG_9397.jpg

That looks like bronzing to me. It is not dangerous, and is usually caused by something rubbing on the feather(s). There are a number of threads here about this if you would like to read more about it.
