My cockatiel has been on one lately constantly flying into windows as I haven’t been able to clip it’s wings this week. My cockatiel flew into a window earlier and ended up somewhat dazed (mouth was hanging open) then I noticed blood coming out from above the beak, between the nose. A photo is attached, there seems to be a spot on the head but I can’t tell if a feather fell out or it’s split or what. Any suggestions to help her until I can get her to an emergency vet would be much appreciated. I have her in a dark, quiet and warm spot with some water. Any tips will be helpful.

Has the bleeding stopped? If not use good pinch of corn starch (flour) and press it to the wound. She may need to see ER vet for possible concussion. Do not use any heat, keep in travel cage hospital cage until you get her the vet. Concussions are nothing mess around in birds. Can you something a blanket in front of the window to keep her from smacking into it. Even curling ribbon hanging so she she sees would help.

You are actually doing about as much as you can until you see a vet.

Good luck.

How is your bird doing now? Did you get her in to see the vet?
