Owl, Hawk, or Chupacabra?

So *this* happened.

Yes, that is a pigeon’s head.

Found it this morning. I have not yet ventured on the roof to see if the body is there.

What do you think?

The other day we found a pigeon body (yes, just the body) on that very same corner of the roof.

We have been finding dead pigeons on our property for the past week or so.

The first time, we saw a stream of blood coming down the wall above the garage door. My husband just sprayed it off with water, without going on the roof to check.

The second time, we found just a body on that corner of the roof. It was whole. Like the head was just ripped off. And that’s it.

Then yesterday, there were 8 vultures in our backyard. They were ripping apart two dead pigeons in the yard.

Today, just a head. The body is quite possibly still on the roof.

My teens and I have been making up stories about what it could be:

1) Our long lost cat has come back and is now some feral thing living on our roof.

2) There is a serial pigeon murderer among the mass of pigeons that live on our neighbor’s roof (another story).

3) Someone is sending a message to those pigeons to not land on our house.

4) Could be an owl or a hawk.

5) It’s a chupacabra.

Oh, look. The vultures are back.


Any theories?

If you haven’t been to my new Facebook page yet, or lately, you probably haven’t noticed that I changed my page name.

My jewelry has gone through a lot of changes over the years, as I’ve dabbled and experimented to find my niche. Life really does lead us down some interesting roads to places we never imagined we’d *ever* end up.

I’m currently taking a class on starting my own online business. I want to get it right this time and not go half-assed, barely-more-than-a-hobby.

My first step is changing the name of my jewelry line:

Anaïs Áine Jewelry.

Next step, working on a website. This class truly is a step-by-baby-step process.

I was originally going to create a business based on homeschooling and helping other parents make the transition.

I was really excited about it in the beginning, and then my ADD started to kick in. Yeah, I got…

I know I haven’t been here for awhile, but I’ve recently started up my jewelry-making again. My focus will be on custom items and only one-of-a-kind pieces. I made a few custom pieces during Mother’s Day and had the customer design them herself!


They were both birthstone themes.

I am also focusing on only using gemstones. I’ve been studying their metaphysical properties and which zodiac symbols they are associated with.

These stones are associated with the Aquarius sign and all are imbued with calming properties.

I probably won’t be posting here for awhile still, but I will be posting new and upcoming pieces on my Facebook page.

I am also getting rid of most of my huge collection of beads, which I’ll be selling in both my Zibbet and Etsy shops.

Come by and say…
