After all, when you come across the word prothalamium and find it means a preliminary nuptial song and a yaffle is a green woodpecker-well, I ask you! You cannot let matters rest there-or can you? Peradventure you will develop into lexicomaniacs.   E. Norman Torry

    I am not sure which is more disturbing, the fact that I have no idea what the quote means or what appears to be a dead bird in the window? 😉

    What do you mean, dead bird!!! The red headed flicker, or for this quote, a woodpecker, is eating the dead berries hanging from the dead Virginia creepers. The birds have eaten all the berries off the vines on both sides of the house. It was fun to see the bird so close. As far as the quote, you may have to revisit when you’re more awake, LOL.

    You have become a true lexicomaniac, Sandy! What a fun yaffle picture!

    What is going on around here, what is that thing in the window, I am pretty sure it is a dead creature lol.

    Such fun to read all your comments! I’m only weighing in now because I gotta admit that Jesse’s and “me’s” observations were mine too even knowing Sandy wouldn’t have posted a photo of a dead bird/creature in her window!! So, with craigfactor 1/7 post re having new eyes I’m still trying hard – – – -very, very hard – – – to see the creature as other than a less than living bird. Should I mention that the living bird (thanks to Sandy’s explanation) appears to be trying to balance itself on a trapeze? – – –

    The birds claws were attached to the screen so it had to contort to eat the hanging berries. Dead bird, please!
