I don't know what it is with me and weird bird findings lately, but this is decidedly NOT a Thanksgiving bird!
Opening the furnace cover to look inside I saw what appeared to be a lot of piles of dirt!
This house, and unit, are only 10 years old.
But I still have a look anyway.
Honestly, I have never seen something like this.
Looking closer, there were not little piles of dirt inside the unit!
They were little birds!
But those birds had been there a while! A long while.
Totally desiccated, I suspected they had been there since construction. Even the maggots are desiccated!
Surely it was a big yummie!
While not the 4 and 20 blackbirds heard about in poem, these five black birds had met a slow, frightening end.
Yep, decidedly NOT a Thanksgiving bird!
Remember, if you cook your bird too long, it will dry out! May I recommend you not put yours in the furnace cavity for 10 years...
But I hope you have a wonderful holiday! Eat up!
