It is illegal to capture most wild birds unless under the direction of someone 
licensed to do so. I don’t know if House Finches are protected in this way, but 
it is always best to leave the capturing and/or treatment of sick or injured 
birds to the professionals. I am copying Victoria Campbell on this message. She 
is a local, licensed wildlife rehabilitator who can assist you.

Carol,

If there is any way you could catch this bird, maybe with a net, it could go to 
the Swanson Wildlife Center at the vet school. They could maybe treat him, but 
it is an advanced case and may euthanize but at least it would be out of pain.  
Poor thing.

Hello all,
I have a mourning dove with avian pox virus sores around its beak coming to my 
feeders. Am I correct that this is very contagious to other birds? Should I 
stop filling my feeders?
Thanks,
Carol Cedarholm
