Pity the poor mockingbird.  They are despised for singing all night, chided for being a bully at the feeders, and killed in the title of a famous novel.  Surely no bird deserves such persecution?  Sadly, the list of injustices that mockingbirds have to suffer through has a new addition: the mange.  Poor, poor, mangy mockingbird.
