Birdless wings

Birdless wings

It’s a bit morbid to stop and take pictures of the partial remains of a dead bird, but these were just too lovely to resist. I think it was my fascination with wings more than anything that drew me to take this shot, but I also found it interesting that the bone structure was still intact enough to keep the two wings together. And what became of the rest of the body before the remains of it landed on a busy city sidewalk…?

    I saw this same thing a few years ago and found it incredibly fascinating. I’ve seen them around once & awhile and I still can’t figure it out. Rats? Crows? People? Dogs? Racoons? It’s a lovely and awful picture.
