    I looked up some images of bumblefoot and I don't believe that is it. He can walk on it by the way, I think it has probably been there for some time.

    In early stages of bumblefoot the bird is able to walk on it. As it progresses one will start to notice the bird favoring that foot until, eventually, the don't bear weight on it. Ideally it gets tended to before it reaches the debilitating stage.

    Could you post another pic(s) of the underside of the foot?
