Default Nose Bleed

So my boyfriend noticed Caboose had some red around his nostrils so we wiped it off with a q tip to make sure it was blood. We live in So Cal where we have El Nino and Santa Anna's and he thinks its dry air causing a nosebleed. His behavior is totally normal, eating drinking pooping playing regularly. Any thoughts? I am inclined to agree it is weather related; however, knowing how sensitive birds are I don't want to take too big of risk. We want to avoid an unnecessary vet visit (lots of money and an hour drive to nearest 24 hour vet)

See pictures (he didnt much like staying still for those)

Are you sure your little Caboose (by the way, she's a girl) was really having a discharge of blood coming out from the nostrils?
From that pic it seems she has a tiny scratch on the cere and that may be where the blood came from. Sometimes budgies can hurt their ceres when playing or flying around in excitement and they will scrape a bit of the cere's skin when playing roughly with a toy or when they have a crash land. This can also happen as a direct consequence of a night fright.

If you are certain Caboose has really bled from the nostrils, then the best course of action would be to book your budgie girl an appointment at the avian vet as soon as possible, so that she is properly checked and treated.

Some years ago I rescued a stray budgie who was in a very bad shape, she had laboured breathing and sometimes would have wet sneezes that contained traces of blood. The vet said she had a serious respiratory infection and she was treated for it, despite all the efforts in 2 months time she gave up the fight.
I don't mean to alarm you, but blood coming out of the nostrils is generally not a good thing and it's best to be safe than sorry and have your Caboose properly checked.

I agree with aluz.
It appears that little Caboose has a small scratch on his cere under his right nare.
