Test
















Trying out a new (to me) way of posting photos to the blog, do bear with me...

So, I found this dead bird by the bins and brought it to my garden. I don't suppose anyone knows what sort it is...?

Is? Was. Too messy to tell, I'm afraid. But I'm sure it'd be delicious.

I can you ping me at thunderroadchapbook@gmail.com?

Eryl said...

Ping?

Sorry, no, I can not say what kind of bird it was, a blackbirg (Amsel) maybe.

Meri said...

An unfortunate bird.

Pat said...

It's a dead one. Ask me another.

Titus said...

Young starling from me. We are in disagreement in our house over this: I scoffed at husband's sparrow suggestion.

Miss Scarlet said...

Golden Eagle?

What are the white disc thingys?

*not going to say 'a dead one' because already said* :-D

I can't tell - poor thing .... pretty mangledly

I think it would be easier to identify if it was right way up.

Can't you check the bar code?

Poor beggar.

Mago ~ I like that word: 'Amsel'.

Meri ~ very unfortunate, poor thing.

Pat ~ what are the white discy things underneath it?

Titus ~ I've been googling like mad and think it may be a female house sparrow. It's kind of toffee-tweed on top and grey chested.

Scarlet ~ they are part of a ceramic wind chime that fell off the plum tree. I keep meaning to clean them, reaffix string and put them back.

Savannah ~ she's a bit clever, that Pat, XXXXX

Kat ~ it is rather mangled.

Weaver ~ good point!

Nick ~ now there's an idea.

Red ~ indeed.

I'm back Eryl. Earlier I read the part about your new photo format.............
But had to run & do something for my mom. Now I realize the photo was of a bird, but I don't know what type it tis.
Still laughing about the last "gardening tips"!!

Constance ~ new test post coming up, this time with a group of photos. It doesn't seem to be working in preview, the text comes out weird, but sometimes what looks odd in preview looks fine once it's published. Here goes!

What are you going to do with the bird now?
