BIRD DROPPINGS

Jaimen Shires

Every bird has a story.

Have you ever watched a Crow eat crackers? Have you seen a Quail's topknot bounce around while it runs? Have you considered what the life of a headless Chicken is like?

I have.

I enjoy letting the beauty of Orioles, Ducks, and Kingfishers streak colours across my mind. I like to indulge in questioning the existence of Thunderbirds or the extinction of the Dodo.

It's not often you hear these tales, considering few birds can speak (and the rest shouldn't) but this is where I come in. I've considered getting drunk with Zebra Finches, contemplated what Flamingo meat might taste like, and wondered if I could train Pileated Woodpeckers to kill for me.

Nominated for a Leacock Medal for Humour, 2021.
