This is the first junco at this site with an eye problem similar to the condition suffered by several house finches.

Unlike the House Finch eye disease, this junco has a growth on the eye that may be Avian Pox. –FeederWatch staff

I have a Darkeyed Junco with what appears to be an eye disease. Years ago I did backyard spotting for Finch issues.

Hi, I have a bird in my house with the same problema as the bird in this picture.
What should I do?
Can you help me?
Thank you.

Holly Grant, Project Assistant says:

Hi Clarissa, Anytime you see a sick bird, it’s best to take your feeders down for a few days and clean them. Cleaning them regularly (every 1-2 weeks) is the best way to prevent disease, even when you see no sick birds. You can learn more about bird diseases and how best to clean your feeders here.
