today i noticed that my quaker parrot has something in his nare. it is brown and somewhat hard. i gently touched it and he did not seem bothered by it. he seemed like his usual self when i handled him. does anybody know what it is? is it a sign of a sinus issue?

It’s hard to tell from the picture but it looks like sinus drainage most likely.
I would take him to an Avian vet to get it checked out.

Maybe a cotton swab dipped in water would help to soften it up and allow you to gently wipe it away.
