Watch the birdie!

Aw, man...

A few weeks ago, when I left the house, there was an opened bird just a couple feet from my motorcycle. Ugh! But when I got back home, the bird was gone. Hooray for nature! Some scavenger must have thought there was enough meat left to take.

Today, I got to the bottom of the steps and found a blue jay lying there (unopened). This area is under cover of the trees, so I don't know if any of the airborne birds of prey / scavengers will see it. I think this Friday is when the neighborhood yard cleanup crew comes through; I wonder if they'll deal with it. I don't think we have a shovel or anything for me to be able to do something. If the cleanup crew leaves it there, I hope I don't step on it when I get home from the races Friday night...
