This partially blind American Goldfinch was just photographed with my iPhone in
East Memphis. I was able to get within inches of the bird without frightening
him. He appears to be blind in his left eye, but sighted in the right eye. He
has been on the same perch of the feeder for at least 20 minutes, alternately
feeding and resting. The orange object attached to his abdomen was a leaf that
we extracted without disturbing him.
