[Tweeters] Song sparrows with almost no tail

Hi Tweets,

I have two song sparrows in my yard that have almost no tail feathers, just
little stubby feathers. Has anyone else seen something like this? I recall
in past years I have seen one like this, and figured it had escaped some
kind of predator. But with two now, it must be genetic. They seem healthy
otherwise and can fly. Thoughts?
