The Xbill was still present early(ish) this morn but I've not seen or heard it subsequently. Later in its stay it took to sitting on the niger feeder rather than feeding under it. It also was feeding on sunflowers from the general seed feeder, but still fed on the ground quite often. I had suspected that it had some infection around its bill from early photos and subsequent pictures show an infection above the hind claw on its left foot.
What was supposed to be a peaceful walk around Northside into Palace turned into a bit of a stress as the hound behaved extraordinarily badly, however, prior to this bit of a do three Orcas showed briefly off the Whalebone, long time no see.
