[CT Birds] sick purple finch?

A purple finch (male) is behaving strangely around my feeder. First,
he flew in chirping and fluttering about in circles seeming to be
having trouble navigating. Then he perched for 20 mins. on the
dogwood near the feeder. He then flew in circles again - landing on
my leg as I sat about 5 feet from the feeder. Now he remains perched
on the feeder not eating. He looks OK but often shakes his head. Is
he ill? Anything I can/should do for him?
Thanks - Mary Ahlgren
