Is real. I know! It looks fake!
It is not a small little bird like you might think. He (she?) is about the size of a small cat.
His feathers are actually quite beautiful.
Not sure what type of bird it is… a crow? blackbird? raven? I am no bird aficionado.
But the huge story about this bird is that…
It is dead.
This little fellow landed on the flower box outside of my parents home….and promptly froze to death in this position.
Facing their house.
They now have a new lawn ornament
