Hi all,
Just thinking about that young magpie with worms attached to the lining of
its mouth and throat.  Perhaps it was starving because the parents did not
want to feed it knowing that it was infected.  It probably is contagious and
they know it.
Does anybody know if other birds such as parrots get these throat worms?
If it is contagious and seagulls get it, chances are that it could spread
very quickly because the way that they steal each others food.
