CHRIS: " could this be one with 2 feet missing if the
 other plumage factors fit an ASPO?".

TOM: "as sorry as I am for the de-footed ASPOs, the "potential SIPO" that I saw did not have missing feet making it look shorter - the give away being that the first joint in the leg (what we tend to think of as a bird's knees but what I believe is actually their ankle) was almost hidden in the plumage of the bird's belly"'


I thought the give away was that the bird was still standing?
