The Curious Case Of The Bright Orange Dead Bird
On my lunchtime walkies with the dog today, something bright caught my eye.
In a bush, still clamped on to a twig but upside down, was this bird - dead as a dodo, with an almost fluorescent orange breast and a jet black head.
Apologies to the squeamish.
Being a little ornotholgically challenged, I have no idea what type of bird it might be (perhaps someone who knows could tell me?). I also don't know what happened to it - it wasn't that cold last night and it didn't have any obvious wounds.
