Default My budgie has poop stuck on his face?

So I got my new budgie, Enzo, yesterday. He's still scared of me but he lets me feed him with millet sometimes. Today, I was whistling to him and he fluffed up, reached his head back to his bottom and turned his head back to me and there was a string of green poop on his face. It's covering a nostril. How do I get it off without scaring Enzo? Please help!

Oh... wow.

Usually when Alistair gets stuff on his face, he's terribly quick to get it back off, like rubbing his face on a perch, or even using his foot to scratch it off.
Seeing as it's poop, if your budgie doesn't do it soon, it's best to get it off of him, just incase.

Using something like a damp, soft cloth and gently wiping the stuff away, trying not to press it into the poor guy's nose. Of course, you're probably going to have to take a hold of him, and if you do, it'll no doubt scare him, but he won't hate you for it, and realise you weren't trying to hurt it eventually.

Maybe some of the experts can offer better advice, but that's what I'd do if your budgie doesn't get it off himself!

Use a soft cloth to gently pick up Enzo while talking to him calmly and reassuringly as you do so.
Use a Q-tip dampened with warm water to carefully remove the poop from his cere and beak.
For his feathers, you can use either a cotton ball or soft cloth dampened with warm water to gently wipe the poop off.
