It has such beautiful markings. This morning I saw an awful lot of feathers on our lawn, guessing a Fox had a meal
early morning!

We do not have foxes on this Island Shirley_tulip but I do see casualties around here also. Different predators.

Lovely photo Klahani. For a small bird, it has lots of patterns in the feathers.
Shirley, we have Peregrines and Sparrowhawks around here and they leave a stack of feathers behind.

Nicely marked little bird. Very much like our house sparrow, it's shape, size and beak. A seed eating bird?

Yes Janey, they like our seeds. It has very unique face markings if they look straight at you.
