My bird Link has been loosing feathers around his ears, eyes and neck, so much so that I can see his earholes, after 6 hours of googleling I've decided to make a post here.

As I said he's loosing feathers around the ears, eyes and neck. He has also been rubbing his head along his perches and cage bars and I believe his feces is discoloured, it's a green colour with a faint green liquid around it (Whatever the liquid is it's dried now). My mother thinks it's mites but in my searches of the vast expanses of google I could only find that mites cause baldness on the back and didn't give information about anywhere else. He may be stressed out by my dogs recent habit of watching him and running to the cage and jumping up if he does anything of interest, but I'm rather concerned and I'm going to try and book a vet visit.
