Need some help identifying Apple disease  RSS feed

Early this summer we moved into a home with an apple tree. The previous owner said it was a 6-7 year old red delicious. It's definitely not the variety that I would have chosen,  but I want to keep the tree alive.

It has a few apples on it right now that look good, other than the fact we had to cover them to protect from birds. I found this branch with oozing stuff coming from it this morning. The leaves in that particular branch are spotted yellow/orange. Any help identifying the problem would be greatly appreciated!

Ummm... Maybe fireblight? See this for a lesser damaged tree: https://permies.com/t/91724/Apple-diseases

Maybe someone in the know will be along soon.
How do they get the deer to cross at the signs? Or to read this tiny ad?
