Hi. One of the blackbird fledglings in my garden has a bad swollen eye. She is approximately 3 weeks old. Her eye was ok yesterday but today it is squinted with a large red lump underneath. She's still eating, and flying well. Her other eye is fine and her feathers look good. Any idea what could be wrong? And could this be spread to any of the other birds?
