I just made an account today because I just noticed that my bird has a strange black marking on his beak, it appeared yesterday and i’m not sure how. His name is cloud, I’ve had him for a year and a half now and he eats sensible seed from Zupreem (I listed this in case it may be a dietary issue). Anyone know what’s wrong? 04AF8D6F-F345-4AE0-A596-DBA9E9217D6D.jpeg

Hi @BirbBorb and welcome to the forum. I am not sure what is causing the beak discoloration, but I hope it's not bruising, or diet. Is he eating veggies at all? He's sure beautiful.

I honestly wouldn't like to try and say what this is. It's not really clear in the photo though it does appear to be on the surface of the beak. So maybe food?
Having said that there does appear to be some misalignment. Is he eating okay?

I’ve tried getting him to eat veggies but he’s always afraid. He’s been sleeping a lot today as well, I also touched his beak while petting him and it seems to be something on his beak, but I can’t be too sure.

You have the advantage of being able to see all around the beak. If it looks like something stuck to the surface of his beak if he goes back to normal then it probably is just food or something stuck to the beak. If he seems to sleep a lot tomorrow then it's probably vet time, just to be sure.

Since he is not eating a variety of food for one year chances are he may be developing liver issues. Time for a vet visit and diet change. All seed diet will make him very sick. Why is he afraid of a dish of chopped veggies?

UPDATE: He’s alright everyone, turns out it was just poop stuck to his nose! I’ll try getting him to eat some fruits and veggies but regularly putting some stuff in their cage to avoid liver disease.
