Description

This house finch visited my feeder April 24th. I believe it has finch eye conjunctivitis, Mycoplasma gallisepticum. After seeing him I decontaminated my bird feeders with hot soapy water, then bleach, and finally soaked it in hot water for good measure. I also composted the seeds and waited 3 days before setting my feeders out again.
