While raking I noticed an unusual colour.
Not a weed, but a bird. Dead.
I don't know when the bird died, but on the day I discovered it, ebird was describing two similar Warblers--the Blackpoll & the the Bay Breasted.
|Bay-breasted Warbler (Wiki)|
|Blackpoll Warbler (Wiki)|
I thought I'd read the article, see if I could determine whether this bird was one or the other, but I found myself bereft.
The discovery brought back very unpleasant childhood memories.
Today I dug a grave, put a marker at the spot and hoped the images would diminish.
