There is a juvenile house finch at my feeder who has this exact deformity on it’s feet (both) as well. It doesn’t seem to hinder the guns in any way that I can tell. I am in Orlando, FL. USA

I had a house finch in my yard for a couple days with a growth on his foot. He ate food on the ground and drank some water. He hung out on the ground in the back corner of the yard with my day lillies. He died yesterday. Oakland, TN
