Unhappy Disease?

I think there is a salmonella outbreak going round in my garden :(. There is a collard dove which is looking very lethargic, usually it will fly off at the first sign of danger, but it let me get within 2 feet of it before it 'tried' to fly off but could only manage a jump. It is now amongst the bushes with its eyes shut and i fear the worst.

There is also a greenfinch with a wort like growth on its head, it is not looking lethargic but there is obviously something wrong.

I don't know what to do and i am starting to panic.

Any one got any thoughts or advice?

If you haven't already, clean your bird feeders/table/etc.

Just to add on what Andy say's, clean your floor area as well, if its lawn give it a good rake, and move your feeders around.
