I saw an house finch in my yard (male) and took several pictures of him. Most do appear normal, but this one I am going to share looks as if their feathers got a bit ruffled and exposed their outer ear. I have read that birds do have ears and have seen several pictures that are kind of similar, but they aren't house finches. Anyone ever see this before. People on a facebook group said the bird had a disease, but I kind of wrote that off lol and said that it was most likely their ear/opening that is usually hidden under their plumage on their cheeks.
