    A normal molting would be an even loss of feathers over a
    period of time.
    When you find a true bald spot, this could be an indication
    of plucking, but not always.
    Keep watching Howard and if this truly is a part of his
    molting process, it will correct itself shortly.
    If it is plucking, the spot will remain bald or even get
    larger.
