Oh the poor love, it must be very painful and he needs some pain relief meds. Since bruising is caused by ruptured blood vessels under the skin he must have had some kind of trauma to that leg, failing that he could be bleeding under the skin for some other reason. If he were mine I'd try metacam once daily for a couple of days but keep and eye on the leg to check if it gets hot and inflamed which would suggest infection. Have you checked his body above the leg for injury in case it's trauma elsewhere that is causing the leg to be affected?
He may need to be seen by an avian vet to determine exactly what's going on. I hope he recovers soon and please keep us posted.
