Red tail ill?

Sorry for the double post. I have recently registered and for some reason I'm having trouble viewing/editing my post.

I have a female red tail and I have noticed she has a clear discharge from her nostrils occasionally. I've recently boosted her feeding now that she's molting and has a great appetite. Only other odd thing I've noticed is frequent muting Mutes seem normal but small. I have seen some larger ones in the morning.

She does not appear fluffed up.
Her vent is clean.
We've had lots of rain the last couple weeks, I've checked underneath the astroturf floor I use and I see no mold.
She does not have bad breath.

I've tried searching for frequent muting and nasal discharge but I haven't found much online.

Do you have any ideas?

Re: Red tail ill?

Its good youre observant with your hawks health but there is only so far you can go without professional advice.

Maybe check with your sponsor but it sound like a trip to a good avian vet is required.

Not sure where you are in Florida but if your struggling finding a vet you might find that the very nice people in Maitland Orlando Audubon Center for Birds of Prey might be able to direct you to a good vet.

Hope its nothing to worry about.
