Thanks Maria. It's sad, maybe just something that needs to pass through the species. I hope they get better!

Nice series, Jacob. Unfortunately, finches in our area get conjunctivitis, too. I clean my feeders but read on a bird site that it doesn't necessarily make a difference. I've seen some with really advanced disease that still manage to flutter around and get food at the feeders.

Thanks Marta. I hope this poor little bird gets better as well. Haemorhous mexicanus seems to get this disease a lot in my area..
