Candler, NC, United States
Northern Cardinal with eye problem. Taken 11/20/13 but first noticed the eye on 11/5/13.
Had a lot of house finches with conjunctivitis (?) this past summer, some slowly declined and eventually died. Noticed 1 or 2 cardinals with same eye issue this summer, but they seemed to heal.
Also, had 3 cardinals with ‘baldness’ to some degree or another this summer. Those cardinals have either regrown their feathers or are gone.
