    1. Rabbits and other burrowing animals tend to die underground. Some birds are killed by other birds, and cats of course. But I just wonder where the thousands of bird corpses disappear to. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. It seems that nature has a way to clean up after itself. Though I did have an unsettling experience earlier this year when after a lot of commotion and noise, I found a very large dead crow in my backyard, something I’d never seen before. It was even more unsettling when another appeared the next day! A crow war? Had they come to my yard to die? In both cases my husband buried them; it hasn’t happened since.

    1. We have wood pigeons killed by local cats occasionally. But think about big cities. London had countless thousands of pigeons, as well as many seagulls. But all the time I lived there, I never saw a dead one, unless it was in the road, run over by a car. It has always interested me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. No doubt many do get eaten, Stevie. But there are hundreds if not thousands of birds in this area, and I have only seen two dead ones in the last three years. I have to assume that they decompose very rapidly. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.
