Default Is my budgie’s wing bleeding?

Went to wake my budgie, Dexter, up this morning and saw this on his wing.

He is acting perfectly normal and happy, and flying normally. I don’t recall any event that may have caused bleeding. (Sometimes he has night scares and flies around his cage bumping into things, but usually the noise wakes me up so I don’t think this happened). Yesterday I’m pretty sure these markings weren’t there.

Thank you in advance.

Those marks are not from a feather bleeding in that particular spot.
It could possibly be blood from elsewhere that the feather has ‘picked up’.
It could also be just a stain picked up from elsewhere e.g. a wet feather (water bowl/bath/wet food) touching a water colour dyed toy.
If he’s acting perfectly normally, then I wouldn’t be too concerned. Just try to be a bit of a detective as to what it could be.
It’s great that you’re so observant to changes.

I agree with Julia completely.
How is Dexter behaving today?

Thank you both for your replies! He’s fine Not sure what the marks are, but he’s perfectly happy and healthy. I’m not worried.
