What Is It XXXXIV - Answers

# 1 Now this is one I thought no-one would get. It is a pair of Mourning Doves that come to my bird feeder. The one on the right had lost its tail outer tail feathers (probably to a cat) and only has one inner feather tail left. My resident bird expert, Warren from England, was able to identify a dove from the other feathers showing. Way to show off your birding knowledge Warren. Check out the neat birds in his area of England.

# 2 This is a slug climbing up the siding on my house. Darla from Florida was first to guess a slug, she still has butterflies in her garden. Craver from Illinois guessed house siding, check out his neat 500Th post and the party going on.

I have to give credit for Paul of Salt Creek Life for getting them both late. Check out his neat Christmas poem.
I hope you had fun. We will do this again after the first of the year.

Got salt?

Ewww... It was lower than a slug; it was a slug's hind end!

Hey, congrats to the other winners, and thanks for the plug for the party! I said plug, not slug... you can keep the slug.

I would have gotten the slug-but never the dove. So neat!

I'm amazed someone could figure that one out! How odd it looks with the missing tail feathers.

Darla said...

Yeah me!! Now I just wonder how this afternoon will be?????????

Poor dovey. Too bad her friend can't share and make her a feather wig.
