Oh no! Such a beautiful bird. Hit by a car? So sad, Velma!
yes, in just a moment, between two ends of my walk, it was killed. it was warm and eyes were still glossy.
Very sad, but I'm so glad you posted these beautiful photos. I'm going to save them as a resource for drawing. You've given this bird another life, in a way. Thanks for taking the time.
ms, jude, alice, yes. there's no such thing as free lunch. and everybody eats somebody. i just moved it off the road and helped the lunchers.
Sad, but yes, someone elses lunch(he, or she, had his/her lunches too)What a beautiful way to study this bird close up ... loooove the feathers !
oh what a gorgeous bird - and so much like the kestrels over this side of the pond. there's been so much wildlife hit by cars this season (no kestrels that I've seen - but countless wombats and wallabies) .... it reminded me of something I read from aldo leopold - about how important it was not to put roads through the middle of a wilderness (he was talking about alaska.... but I immediately thought of home.... just like now with your pics...)
els, yes, one tail feather stayed with me.ronnie, i know. i hate the whole roadkill "thing".
Ohhhh it always saddens me to find a dead bird, especially a raptor. On the other hand it is exciting to be able to study it up close.
robyn, it seems you could learn a universe from this small one.
Oh, sad... Kesterel?
er....um, can't spell.. kestrel.
Such a gorgeous creature. Thanks for sharing.
V- always a sad find. B
