Thursday Bird Blogging
Hail to the common Brewers Blackbird. You probably don't notice this bird, although it is a survivor and common just about anywhere there are open places. It winters in the south. Why I am featuring it today, is that at Eschaton a poster was rejoicing in a bird that seemed to be singing fuckbush,fuckbush,fuckbush, and I just suspect he was hearing our Blackbird.
For another reason, Chicago Dyke was pointint out recently that black kittens seldom win the cuteness contests. She thinks people don't like the color black very much. I don't argue with that, it may be that black is associated with bad luck when it comes to cats, and of course, Ravens and other black birds traditionally carried bad omens. Probably this dates back to the times when it wasn't safe to be out at night as there were predators - so dark was associated with scarey things.
This bird, though, is lovely, and very innocent of any harm to you. Enjoy the blackbird, a pretty and enjoyable sight.
