Is this bird Sick? (1 Viewer)

With those growths (or whatever they are) on the sides of its face if it’s not feeling ill effects now it soon will be.

Excellent video, BTW. What camera?

I'm wondering if they might be tics on both side of its beak. Can you call you local audubon society to see if there is someone they can send out or recommend to come out and take a look and possibly catch it and give a better clue as to what is going on.

In any case an opportunity for everyone to look to their routine bird table and bird feeder cleaning, especially in hot weather!
