We have a flock of sparrows and finches that hangout at our tube feeder. We also have a Bird Buddy (hence the close up pics). This little guy showed up on 3/11/23 several times. Its right eye seems to be popping out, there is one wart-like growth on its body, and the feathers on top of its head seem tattered. I feel so bad for it but it is sitll eating. We just took down our feeders about two weeks ago due to a case of house finch eye disease. I’ll take down the feeders again and wash them. There are a lot of other feeders in our neighborhood so hopefully it won’t spread.
