AndyW posted a topic in Help Me Identify a North American BirdI think this is a female American Goldfinch whereas the person I was with has some doubts. What initially drew my attention to this bird was the nice yellow color on the neck area. The back of the bird is an olive coloring. At first glance I thought it was a female warbler of some sort, then changed my mind. This was at Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge in Middletown, Rhode Island on July 5th. Photo are my photo and my friends photo. Thanks.
A friend of mine took this picture of a Goldfinch and asked for help on what maybe wrong with his bill. His upper bill has a bump on it and seems a bit longer than normal and the bottom seems to have a growth. Does anyone know what causes this, injury or infection, and is it contagious for other birds? Thanks in advance, Karen
Conjunctivitis in Goldfinches
kfhgw posted a topic in Help Me Identify a North American BirdI was taking pictures of birds this morning in southwest Wisconsin and came across this goldfinch. Does it have conjunctivitis? It was only in this bird that I could see that had it and only its left eye. These were birds at a feeder, is there anything I should be doing to stop it from spreading? Karen
