why has the gold finch in our garden died

we have just had a Gold Finch die having observed her for several days becoming more uncomfortable, it was preening it self consistantly and eventually became to weak to survive. We have a feeding station in the garden with many varieties of garden birds feeding here. We have empteid ,cleaned and refilled the feeders in case of any desease, what is the possible problem?

    Birds will often preen a lot when they are stressed or sick. It sounds likes like either the bird was old (did the feathers look ragged?) or it was sick with some kind of disease. It was a good idea to clean out your feeding station and to keep an eye on other birds that visit. However, it was likely just a bird that choose your nice garden as a place for its final days.
