“Yesterday I witnessed something really unusual. A Cinereous Tit (Parus cinereus) with a right foot deformity, which has been coming to our feeder since its fledging days in July/August, self-amputated its useless foot. Do take a look at this video below.

“I am so glad I witnessed Footsie trying to sever its foot. If I had not, I would have forever wondered how it had lost it.”
