Description

Observed a sick female House Finch on the morning of 3/4/14 with a severe case of conjunctivitis. Both eyes were swollen and crusted shut, but it was feeding on seed at the feeder. Around 4pm that same day, the female was found deceased under the same said feeder. I observed a male with the disease about a month before this incident, but nothing in between.

Female House Finch

I did not have a camera to take a photo of the sick bird; this just shows the feeder where it was found below.
