Conjunctivitis in Goldfinches


Recommended Posts

I 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?

That definitely looks like conjunctivitis. I've been watching it spread through the local finches here. The local wildlife rescue said to take down feeders for two full weeks to make the birds socially distance.
