Where is the crop of a budgie to be exact?

Today while playing with my budgie, ive noticed his stomach(?) was a tiny bit bigger than usual and thought maybe he gained some weight? But thats odd? He hasnt been eating more than usual or anything. So i thought, maybe its just his crop.

Then i did some small amount of research as to where the crop is, but couldnt be fully sure about it. Is it where his crop is in the pictures? Its placed quite lower than thought if thats the case.

Here are some photos of my budgie, and a budgie anatomy picture ive found online as reference.

This is accurate.
It is a little bit above where you drew on your photos.


:blink: They seem naive to think that is "feather picking", something rare in budgies to begin with. Looks a lot like PBFD :(
I didn't watch or read anything (my bad I guess), just saw the crop area bald and posted it. Bird does not look well at all.
