Day four – colly birds

And on day four, this?

Latin: turdus merula;

‘Thanks’, with sarcasm.

 

As the rhyme was intended to portray someone giving incrementally better and better gifts, the four common blackbirds are a bit of a kick in the teeth, I feel.  However, perhaps they do taste divine in a little pie – I wouldn’t know, because I wouldn’t eat anything of the genus ‘turdus’.
