About

I like birds. I like them in the flesh, in the Bill Oddie sense, and I like bird related ephemera (I also like to eat them, but it seems rather vulgar to mention that here!) I noticed about a year ago that I was unconsciously accumulating bird ephemera, and since then have been consciously doing so, and figured it wouldn’t hurt to have a little blog for it. So here it is, a haphazard collection of things I have acquired in the bird theme. I probably don’t have much to say about any of them beyond ‘I like this’ or ‘This is pretty’, so images will be the order of the day.

I also consistently mispell ‘ephemera’ as ’emphemera’, so please let me know if I do it again.
