It's been a while since I've posted on this forum, but I have a question about my bird Leafer. Yesterday, I noticed these black specks on her head. The area around the cere and around the specks is red. Does anyone know what this is?

Is Leafer moulting? The black dots look like the tops of newly grown pin feathers. When my birds are moulting, this is what they look like.

I agree with budgiekisses, that what you are seeing is a result of her molting, it will clear up once all the pin feathers open fully.

definitely pin feathers. the cere might just be skin shedding; when my two moult they also sometimes shed the skin on their ceres too

Thank you all so much! I've never really seen, or at least noticed, these spots during her past molts so I wanted to make sure there was no problem by running photos of her by you all. I'm glad that the things on her cere don't seem to be mites.
