Based on the wild origin of the bird, recent history of physical restraint, clinical presentation, and abnormal blood test results, the presumed diagnosis was capture myopathy.
On day 2, the bird was found with its left leg having become twisted in the sling, and it was apparent that the excitable nature of this wild-caught bird would exacerbate the capture myopathy and prevent successful recovery.
