I finally made my first real catch today - a bird! An actual live bird! No more lizards & geckos for me, no sir! Only bird on the menu from now on. It was a thrush. Grey, with a yellow beak & yellow legs. It was terrified - screamed blue murder! I loved it!! Now all I have to do is figure out what I'm supposed to do with said bird after catching it . . .
Off course mom had to come & ruin my fun. Cause of the bird screaming she came running to see what was going on. She looked at me, scolded me, saying I'm not just supposed to sit there stare at it. Well excuse me, if someone can find me a textbook on bird-roasting or something I might be better equipped to do the job next time??! She took it :( Locked it up in a cage, nursed it back to health. I think she just wanted to torment me. I tried to persuade her to feed it some garlic, thyme, a bit of basil . . . To no avail. I will not be having roast thrush for Easter lunch :(
