Sideburn gives you wings: UPDATE

I spotted this outside Urban Outfitters, Leeds on Boxing Day. I got some funny looks when I stopped to take a photo of it. G

UPDATE: Just got this from Chris in the South of France 'I found this a couple months back.... it's spreading!'

G, that is one of the more unhinged and macabre offering on the blog ever, I applause. To think you call me a pervert! Great name for a gloomy gothic pub, 'The Bodiless Bird'.

No doubt the work of a falcon. Always root for the falcon!

Yup, Peregrine is favorite

Peregrine Falcon? You haven't been to Leeds citty centre recently, I take it. It's more likely it had a heart attack after eating too many dropped pizza slices and koner kebabs and the rats finished it off.
If anyone has spotted a Peregrine in Leeds since the discovery of electricity I'll eat a raw pigeon.
Nevertheless, I like a bit of twitchery on the Sideburn blog, so keep it up. Thanks
G
PS I actually thought it was the result of a defrocked angel.

Doner, not koner... G

Obviously that rat-with-wings had been checking out the SB Enfield and exploded from the awesomeness of it. Methinks you boys have quite the effect on the birds! (sorry, couldn't resist)

Peregrine, have been nesting on high rise buildings in london, favorite food, guess what? Pigeon!!

Nick, I stand corrected.

Thanks. More twitching!

Alright, I confess, hungry as hell, I always enjoy small game birds and lately I've developed an a la naturale Sashimi fetish . . . I knew I should've put the remnants in bins, the jig is up. I'm now in Russia and feasting on old KGB agents. Steven Piranha, no relation.

I saw a lovely pair of golden plover the other day, but their. Torso's were still attached.
Does this still count?!!.

I reckon most things that hang out outside urban outfitters would be chuffed to have their photo taken and get put on a blog.

'kin hipsters.
