Lobotomy Goldfinch

Yep, that’s what we’ve been calling this guy. Not sure exactly what is going on (accident, molting) but he has been showing up to the feeder like this for a few weeks now. My husband even noticed and said “where’s that birds head?”

    Well he seems to be making it! But how cool is that. Strange but unique that is for sure. Hope it makes it. Maybe just the loss of a lot of feathers up there makes him look like his head is chopped off (?)

    He comes by every day now. No signs of disease or anything else weird. I think he will live a normal Goldfinch life despite his appearance 🙂 He’s either very lucky or very unlucky. I can’t decide which though.
