Among the birds visiting our feeder during lockdown there's a robin who has a bare (featherless) neck and missing feathers in its red breast. It's been like this for weeks but now seems to be losing feathers down its back. We also have a very scruffy looking great tit. Feathers missing patchily all over. Do you think they've been in fights or is it a disease?
apologies if this post is in wrong thread.
Hi Susan , this is a common sight at this time and this question pops up at least once a week. Here is a coupke of links to previously answered questions community.rspb.org.uk/.../1306511
Hope this helps
