This is not a bird, in the strictest sense of the word. It’s a kinnaree, which will appear in Ryan Durney’s upcoming “Birds of Lore” book. It’s related to birding only in that that I’ve been working on it when I’d ordinarily be out looking for birds, for the last little while.
On another note, today’s apparently World Naked Gardening Day. How do you rate my odds of snagging some naughty snaps of Mr. Dolgonosov? (Not, of course, that I have a thing for horrid old men, or their horrid old flesh. I meant more, y’know, for blackmail purposes: “Chase that goose ONE MORE TIME, and I spread your Cryptkeeper arse all over Facebook!”)
Oh, dear. That was unpleasant.
Stay tuned for birds — actual birds!
