Taking photos of the birds at the feeder allow me to identify them. This picture was taken to confirm a finch or house sparrow. I believe it is a finch. It also confirmed it had conjunctivitis which prompted me to call the Milford Audubon society as well as send an email to Project FeederWatch. The feeders have been cleaned with soap and water and the proper bleach/water solution.

It’s good that you cleaned the feeders and contacted Audubon and the Cornell Lab. I hope the little guy fights off the disease. Also, that is an adult male House Finch.
