This House Sparrow has been showing up at my feeders for a few months now. He has a patch of grey fluffy feathers on his right side. At first, I thought they were juvenile feathers that were going to fall off but they have continued to come back in strangely, although not quite as fluffy as they were initially. I’m curious about what is causing this. I have more pictures if you need them.
