Inspired by the recent "Colour Week" on numeroous blogs throughout the web. I've decided to have my own theme week so welcome to "Bird Week". Every day this week "Strange Fragments" will feature a bird related blog. Why? Because I think "Bird Week" has a funny sound and I really like birds!
The first birds I'd like to mention are Ann Wood's raggedy toy birds. These are the scrappy kind of birds that you might find hiding in those elusive "safe places" where you put things you don't want to lose. Very shy, oddly beautiful, they are distinguished by their lacy plumage and when camoflaged can be mistaken for wisps of long forgotten balls or faded birthday parties.
