    Common Chaffinch. So pretty and cute!

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    No wonder this bird has become France's national symbol...

    After all, Lions, Bears, Dragons, Tigers and Eagles are so cliché....

    And like we say in France, it's the only bird that sings even when it knows that its feets are stuck in the shit. So squalling and so boastful... yet so ridiculous! So perfectly French...

    It's really hard not to make an obvious, overused joke, but you kind of already made it.

    If Benjamin Franklin had his way, this would be our national bird.



    Hmmm, he did enjoy hanging out in France, from what I heard.

    Many birds are actually quite tasty when eaten, especially when stuffed with mushrooms and chestnuts, and served with appropriate vegetables...

    Ducks and geese remain my favorite, so far.

    One of the most famous (if not mythical) recipe:

    Poularde de Bresse « demi-deuil » (In English "Half-widow Poultry")

    Ingrédients : 1 poularde de 2,2 kg, 2 truffes fraîches de 80 g pièce, 1 kg de navets nouveaux, 1 kg de carottes nouvelles, 1 kg de jeunes poireaux, 1 céleri branche, 50 cl de crème double, 5 litres de fond de volaille.

    La veille : garnissez la poularde sous la peau des filets et des cuisses de 8 belles tranches de truffes. Mettez le reste des truffes à l’intérieur de la volaille, avant de l’envelopper d’un linge étamine très fin et bien serré. Passez une ficelle sous les ailes et sous les cuisses pour bien la maintenir et laissez reposer au réfrigérateur.

    Le lendemain : épluchez, lavez et coupez les légumes. Portez le bouillon de volaille à ébullition et mettez-y la poularde après avoir retiré les truffes qui étaient à l’intérieur et que l’on hachera très finement. Après 25 minutes de cuisson, ajoutez les légumes et laissez cuire encore 25 minutes.

    Laissez reposer 15 minutes à couvert. Pendant ce temps-là, faites réduire à glace 50 cl de fond de volaille, puis ajoutez la crème double et faites cuire 10 minutes. Salez, poivrez et incorporez la truffe finement hachée. Laissez mijoter quelques minutes. Découpez la poularde. Dressez les morceaux dans un plat ou directement dans chaque assiette et nappez de sauce crémée à la truffe. Servez les légumes en accompagnement.


    And if you want to know more:

    I like eating birds too. Never had geese, though. Duck is killer, as is well-prepared chicken. Sadly, chestnuts are hard to come by in the U.S. because of a blight that killed them all off. You can sometimes find imported chestnuts from Italy in grocery stores, though. I think there is a place near me that has one of the variety that's crossed with the disease-resistant chinese variety that they are trying to use to re-introduce them. Not sure if that's a good iea or not, but I might see if I can go over there tomorrow

    We do have a native different species of walnut, though. I just had one, and it is incredible.
