If the bird can be caught, it should be taken to a wildlife rehabilitator licensed to care for migratory birds for treatment...conjunctivitis can be treated. Only problem is the birds are really hard to catch until they get very visually impaired. Please respond via email if you need help finding a rehabilitator and I'll try to assist.

It looks to me as if it is a House Finch with the beginnings of the
bacterial eye disease that was so prevalent a few years ago, as the eye
appears slightly closed and swollen. I remember some of those birds
fluffed up on the feeder. I hope I'm wrong.
