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 www.surfbirds.com. I found it to be useful information.

Charlie,

I bet your Mockingbird (posted on Surfbirds) has a tracheal worm infection
(gape worm). See <
http://www.nwhc.usgs.gov/pub_metadata/field_manual/chapter_30.pdf> for
details of this disease in wild birds.
