House Finch & American Goldfinch health
The House Finch Disease Survey monitors the occurrence and spread of conjunctivitis in House Finches and other bird species. The disease first appeared in Winter 1993-94, when bird watchers in Virginia and Maryland reported House Finches with red, swollen, crusty eyes. Since that time, the disease has continued to spread.
