Do you have a clearer picture you can post? It looks like there is some issue in the nares, more so on the left side but the picture is not detailed enough to tell if it is a crusted discharge or something else. Is the bird sneezing or showing any signs of distress?

No, he doesn't sneeze. I think he's got breathing problems because his tail is bobbing when he breathes. Here's a more detailed picture. I think you can click the picture to see it whole.

If there is a pronounced tail bob then you need to see an avian or exotic vet to determine what the issue is, if he has an upper respiratory infection he will need some meds to clear it up.

It is dependent on how he behaves. If he is not active then it may be a severe disease. check his activity level. Trip to a vet is required .

When there is respiratory distress then the bird has an infection which may be viral, bacterial or fungal and must be treated with the appropriate medication.

You definitely need to take the budgie in to an Avian Vet for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

If there are no Avian Vets near you, please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience in dealing with small birds.

Having your budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.

Please post your picture full-size so we can see it better. I'm wondering if the bird also has scaly mites but can't enlarge the thumbnail enough to see.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
