Blackbird

Blackbird

The beautiful iridescent plumage of Blackbird has attracted the attention of people throughout the ages. This combined with it's intense black color has marked it as an omen of evil as well as goodness. Some believe that it is an enabler for travel to other worlds. Celts believed that Blackbird was one of the oldest animals in the universe. Wiccans frequently associate Blackbird with death. In more modern times, the United States built the ultimate spy plane, the SR-71, and nicknamed it Blackbird. That Blackbird was used in black operations around the world and was painted black to boot - thus the name.

Our Blackbird is not interested in any of that intense spy plane stuff. He is a very peaceable neighbor and you will find him throughout the Ranch, particularly in the meadows. He forages on the ground and travels in flocks except when it is a matter of amore - then he is a couple.

Iridescent is Beautiful
