Not sure what happened here. My first guess is that a hawk got to this pigeon. A trail of feathers laid strewn from a birch tree to where this headless carcass lay, just a few feet from the footpath. I noticed the crows munching away, then I noticed what they were munching on. They are such cagey birds that they took off (with much commenting) when I slowed down to get a better look (and take pictures). I guess an alternative title for this post could be "rubbernecking".

It is, of course, my luck to have sat down at my desk with my lunch, took a bite, and then clicked on your blog. Yummy.

Whereas I, trying to get a better look at the bird, noticed nothing worse than what's on the picture. So I went looking for the head, cuz dead eyes and torn off necks are always wonderful to take pictures of, but I couldn't find it. Oh, are you still eating?

(I think both this blog and any reader's stomach have take a turn for the worse.)

You're not the only person I know who likes to take pictures of dead things -- would it surprise you to know that my dear daughter (the one with her sun, moon and mercury in her 8th house), loves to take pictures of roadkill?

Heh. That's perfect astrological symbolism. :-)
