New Mockingbird

Mockingbird, 4 weeks old. Arrived crusted with catfood from the good intented attempt by a birdlover to save the bird. Nose and eyes were crusted over, bird was not able to see. After 3 sessions with cottonswabs and water, we got most of it off.
However, due to the wrong diet for a full week, the first signs of Metabolic Bone Disease are showing. Hopefully it's early enough!

Mockingbird has a great appetite and bowel movement is normal again and he gained back strength.

Update: the bird started refusing food and I felt that I could not do everything I should for the bird, so she was transfered to my supervising rehabber who has more than 20 years of experience.
