Sparrow Mites

It’s not a nice post, but as this is a record for us, this is something worth keeping an eye out for. When this sparrow was found it was very weak and disorientated. We could see what appeared to be growths on its head but as it was an evening we kept it in a box outside so it would be safe, but by the time morning came around it had died. We called the vet, just in case it was something contagious, and they let us know that these brown things are, in fact, mites. Poor thing 🙁
