Re: Is my bird plucking?

Hard to know for certain, but doesn't look like an injury other than the oblong reddish area.

Do you notice if he over-grooms or pays extra attention to the area?

I'll share this informative thread, gives some indications of what causes plucking and how to manage. (not suggesting he is plucking)
