Description

This bird is a daily visitor to our yard. He is a bit aggressive at the feeder and usually pushes off other birds trying to feed next to him, but not always. He spends a lot of time in the aspen tree near the feeder and bird bath.

Is this avian pox? I had similarly affected female house finch in summer 2020 & my heart broke watching her. Also I had to bleach feeders literally on daily basis to minimize spread. She passed away during the heat wave in August. 😢

I was thinking pox too. How did you figure out the Finch passed away? 😢
