Most likely it's just molting - all adult birds molt each year - sometimes slowly, a few feathers at time so it's hardly noticeable. Other times quickly, and they look really raggedy for a few weeks. But just to be sure there's not an issue, check him over very carefully (especially around the vent and under the wings) for mites or other pests.
