Hi,My Quaker Poppit was sitting on my arm yesterday and got a fright and jumped on to the wooden floor,because his last owner clipped both his wings he couldn’t fly,so he dive bombed onto the floor obviously beak first.When I picked him up I noticed the top part of his beak at the bottom was bleeding a bit, it didn’t break all the way through.After he was returned to his cage he was very quiet and then started this head bobbing every time I went to his cage ,He did come over to me but still bobbing his head which he has never done before. It would’ve hurt him and maybe got a headache from the bang but even today when I go near him he starts the bobbing again.Hes eating ok but is very quiet which is strange and wants to sleep with his head tucked under his wing during the day.I looked online about the head bobbing and some say they do it cause they want to be with you,but it’s weird that he only just started doing it after his dive bomb into the floor.Does anyone know what could be wrong.
I am sorry your little guy fell, birds beaks are very sensitive and if there was blood it was likely very painful. If you have an avian vet it would be a good idea to get him checked. Young birds bob their heads to beg for food, if your guy is young and in pain he might be doing that since he isn’t feeling well
Hopefully you can get him checked by a vet and on some pain meds so he can rest and heal.
Sorry about your QP's accident and injury. Caseysmom has made an excellent suggestion-- a vet visit is really a good idea. Sometimes Quaker parrots will revert to the baby parrot begging behavior when they are ill or in pain. A veterinarian who is avian certified, or at least experienced in treating parrots, can evaluate the extent of your parrot's injury and prescribe medicine if necessary.
