Bourkes Parakeet, 'Poor Little Dead Thing,' Photographic Series


Came home to find one of my little Bourke parakeets had suddenly passed away. A beautiful little bird, which I did my best to make use of and photograph. I still can't bear to dispose of her body and she is still wrapped up in my fridge. Wish I knew a bit of taxidermy or was about to make a cast of her little body. Seems such a waste. Only had her for a short time, but she was sweet.
Photos aren't great, not happy with the quality of my camera these days, don't know why it seems so poor. Any way a bit different from my usual dead wild birds that meet their end via the cats or window!
