A Death in the Backyard

Sandi yells to me in our new downstairs office:

"Did you hear that crash? Something big just flew into the window!"

I looked out the back door to see a large bird twitching in the grass.

He's very heavy in my hands and very warm, without a pulse.

Rufus yells out the window upstairs:

"Is it dead, Daddy?"

"Yes he's dead."

He's as dead as a Ruffed Grouse that just attempted to fly through that window where there's a big hole in the screen....
