Bricks pushing in

I have a wall between two downspouts where it looks like the bricks are starting to push inwards. You can see the main brick with the white grout on it below. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas what might cause this. Thanks.

To me it doesn't look like the bricks are pushing in; it looks like they are flaking away. Notice the small chips on the ground under them. The mortar is staying put, but the bricks are eroding below it.
