Gouldian Red-head Male feathers changing

Hello, For the past week, I have noticed that my male red-headed Gouldian Finch had his head-feathers becoming increasingly white. He seems to be behaving normally in all other respects. Is this an illness or just normal molting? Thank you!

It may be normal molting, or it may be dermatitis, or it could be a nutritional deficiency. I recommend that you have him examined by an avian veterinarian.
