Mighty Mouse, What kind of bird am I?
6 photos

When I picked up Mighty Mouse from a local vet's office, she was covered with mites, so her original name was Mitey Mouse. Now she's clear of parasites and is Mighty, not Mitey.

At first glance Mighty seemed like a starling, but there were some differences from Scrappy, the starling I picked up from the vet on the same day.
