Since the weather has been getting better and the snow is melting, all the junk that was frozen over the winter is starting to surface….

…I found a dead bird beside our deck :(

Way back in November 2007, we were watching TV downstairs when we heard this loud bang upstairs. We thought, at the time, it was some stupid kid throwing snowballs, or something. However, now that bang make sense.

The bird flew straight into our window, must have died instantly on impact, and then fell down beside our deck – which is why we never noticed it before. Then all the snow fell, and covered it up.

The way it landed, it looks like it dove right into the ground. It sucks because I hate seeing animals “get-it”. Part of nature I guess…

Dead bird - looks like a robin, or it might be a dove
