We have a pair of Cordon Bleu finches and the male is loosing his feathers on the back of his head. Is he beginning moulting?

Finch losing feathers

If your bird is molting you will not see bare spots, so if you see bare spots then it is possible the cage mate is plucking it.

I suggest you put the bird in a separate cage, and if the bald spot continues to stay there or grow, then you will need to Find an Avian Vet to examine the bird to rule out disease and determine what is causing this.
