I keep finding more dead bird cards. Not all of them are specifically Christmas-related, but… whatever, this is my hobby. I answer to no one.
If these are new to you, and you’re thinking WHAT THE ACTUAL FLYING THING!?, I did my best to explain them here.
I want to keep them all in one place (because when I did this before, I soon found even more). (That rhymed.)
This is my favorite new one. It looks like it might well be a fake with the bugs and the cropping, but I can’t say. If it is legit, tho, it’s unique for including the bugs, which adds an extra dimension of, of course, creepiness.
But first, let’s gather up all the ones we have already, especially the classics:
So then we have cards that have a dead bird in them, but it’s part of a larger scene. (And apologies, but most of these have watermarks b/c I found them online or in auction websites which are a bitch to download sometimes.)
Then there are dead birds that aren’t specifically about Christmas.
I can’t decide if this is actually a “dead bird” card or a pre-feast image or what:
And there are of course lots of cards that show dead birds as part of feasts. These are fun and definitely not to modern tastes. But they don’t really count:
And finally, we have good clean murderous fun.
If and when I find more… I’ll forget to post them here and will end up just making a new post a few years down the line.
(Thanks especially to the Mary Evans Picture Library where I obviously found a bunch of new stuff. If anyone else trolls thru there, please let me know what you find!)
Merry Avian Mortality!
If you’re feeling generous, you can leave a donation at Ko-Fi.com. It’s probably Christmas-time (ish) when you’re reading this, so remember the spirit of the season is giving. And I’m trying not to turn on the guilt machine, but I would like to pay my hosting fees. heh heh
Or PLEASE LEAVE A WEIRD REVIEW ON APPLE PODCASTS OR YOUR FAVORITE PODCAST APP! Send me a note that you did (email@example.com), and I’ll send you a sticker!
So very odd…ha!
