I first noticed a female house finch with a bad-looking eye on March 17, 2015. I saw the same bird or another house finch female on my PFW weekend with another terrible looking eyeball. Couldn’t tell if it was a disease problem, cat mangling, or other injury. I have photos of house finch females taken on March 17, 21, and 22 if you need them for comparison. I could not tell whether these are the same females or different house finch females observed with bad eyes.

    We seem to get more each year even though we keep cleaning and replacing our feeders. They real our hearts as we watch them flutter and reach for a perch.
    Should they be euthanized?
