It is interesting that you posted this.  Here is a similar bird that I 
photographed at
Susan Shazler’s property back in 2006.  For some reason I have been getting a 
lot of messages from people this
summer who have seen birds with this condition showing up at their
feeders.  Many of them seem to be in the
general San Antonio area.


It would be great to hear what some of the possible causes
of this condition are.

No, he's not 100% featherless, but he lacks any feathers on his head. Anyone 
have any idea whats wrong with him?
