The Color White

white feathers

was apparent to me this rainy Spring morning.  The first thing I noticed was this area of white feathers.  This means one of our white hens was eaten by a predator last night, most likely a raptor.  Here is a closer look:

The pile of feathers was getting smaller as the barn swallows wer rapidly picking them up to make their nests.  Recycling in action.
