I saw this little guy at my feeders and at my bird bath. I wasn’t sure if it was finch eye disease or avian pox. I took my feeders down temporarily and bleached them. I tried to capture him with my FLAP net to take him to Shades of Hope Wildlife Rehab but he was too quick. I felt so sad for him.

I know exactly how you feel! They’re still well enough to get away from us but not doing that well. Brings me to tears.

Poor guy, I hope he gets better soon.
