goldfinch advice needed.

Yesterday a goldfinch started visiting my birdfeeders. Today I realized he has flying issues. He manages to get from tree to bush to feeder but with a great deal of effort. He can hover but has a hard time flying forward. I can't detect any obvious injury and he looks healthy. Could this be related to fall molting? I would very much appreciate any thoughts and advice.
