A 1-year-old male canary (Serinus canaria, Jibber breed), with a protuberance on the left tibia was referred to the clinic. The bird was not able to use the affected foot to stand on its perch. The radiograph and surgery thereafter revealed a hard tissue mass, which was removed and diagnosed, on histopathologic examination, as an ossifying fibroma tumor. To our knowledge, ossifying fibroma has not been reported in birds so far, and this is the first known report of this tumor in birds.
