Hey Tweeters,
I got the following e-mail from a UK birder when I posted a couple of
photos of the obviously troubled Olympia N. Mockingbird (which may or may not
be still present) on I found it to be useful information.


I bet your Mockingbird (posted on Surfbirds) has a tracheal worm infection
(gape worm). See <> for
details of this disease in wild birds.
