Description

Frontal picture shows one leg. It is very difficult to get a photo of the other (bad) leg because it’s drawn up into his feathers most of the time. The second photo shows how he uses his left wing for balance by letting it droop. He also flutters it if needed. I’ve observed him for a week or two and he is eating well. He flies to & from the feeders without any particular difficulty. I’ve even seen him in the birdbath.
