I have a male at my feeder. Eating the suet like there is no tomorrow. His eye looks affected too. It’s cold here but not real cold.

Texas Bird Family says:

If its cold than birds puff up when its cold.

Pamela says:

I have one too. Been at the feeder for quite a while -over 20 minuets. Not eating. Wouldn’t even move when I approached it. Must be sick. Very bloated stomach.
