I noticed this lesser goldfinch at my feeder along with some american goldfinches. It was the only one with eye disease. The left eye appeared normal. It was not acting lethargic, but it did stay at the feeder after the other birds flew away. Later it flew to the bird bath, then flew away.

I am suddenly finding dead Lesser Goldfinches. I’m guessing it is the eye disease. Other than cleaning feeders, I don’t know what to do for them. Haven’t had this problem with Lesser Goldfinches before this year.
