A Baltimore Oriole pair has been visiting my yard in New Jersey for the last two weeks. I only noticed today, where I could snap a picture of the male, that his left eye appears swollen and crusted over. I am hoping with the nutritional feed in the yard and with his natural diet combined that he can recover from this disease naturally. I am very interested in learning more about what disease the oriole could have and the likelihood of it passing it to other birds in the area.
