Default Jester has an injury

Jester has been molting frequently since I got her in November. Recently she has figured out coming to my hand on command when her cage is open and has enjoyed exploring my desk space while I work.
Today when she stretched I noted a dark patch under her wing. It's not bleeding. She has had no blood on her that I have noticed. She doesn't seem bothered by it and is being her normal curious self minus now hating me for picking her up twice. I have apologized with millet.
Is this likely a scrape or a blood feather? Is this something I should go to the emergency vet for or can I monitor her at home. When I took her to the vet previously she was so distressed they could barely examine.
Thank you

It doesn't look like a wound to me.

I personally wouldn't be concerned about it.

You don't need to worry, that's not an injury.
The pink colour you see is the blood supply to the feather.
This is more visible in white based budgies, especially on albinos like your girl.
You may even notice the same pink spot on the feather of her other wing, if she happened to moult both feathers at approximately the same time.

Default Thank you

This forum has been fantastic as I try to figure things out. I really appreciate your speedy informative responses and tolerance for what must be common sense to you.
Is there a resource for "normal" detailed parakeet pictures? When I have looked I find a lot of pictures of when things go wrong but not things like this is what their feet, beak, ect should look like.
Thank you again.

We are more than happy to help ease any worries you might have when it comes to your birds health.

You are correct that finding pictures of a certain illness/disease etc. is easier than finding things that are considered 'normal', like your picture, for example.

Many instances like this, it's always best to just make sure and we're more than happy to help.

If you have a photo/with description, there's almost always someone in TB with experience that will help you out promptly. They will also tell you if it's something should be seen by an avian vet.
