Another strange robin

Back on Oct. 11th I posted images of a robin with a strange malady. Now I've seen another similarly infected robin. I'm only seeing this at Tanner's Spring. This robin could bathe and be aware of potential dangers, but it had difficulty balancing and then taking off for flight. I think its days are numbered. The sick robins are speckled, are not immature robins, and have feet imperfections, either swollen spotted feet, or, as in the case of this robin, a gnarled foot.
