@holly @adegiulio I don’t think he’s ever been named. He’s still a wild bird, technically. He does have a mate, but she’s more stand-offish.

@adegiulio @holly Oh yes, as tweeted earlier today, and as cited in the Guardian article, I know this specific bird personally.

@JohnBirmingham I’m appreciating how Muffingeddon has begun.
