Pictures of Killdeer, Plantain, Burdock, and More...

I took Monty out for a walk in the field behind the house this afternoon.

He needs the exercise, and so do I.

I brought the camera and took photos of Seagulls, Robins, a Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus), common plantain (Plantago major), common burdock (Arctium minus), some green algae in a pool of water, and a dead worm (Deadus wormus a.k.a. Birdus foodus).

If I were hungry and lost in the wilderness I could roast up the roots of the plantain and burdock for the starch. I suppose I would eat the seagulls too. Well, probably not.

The Killdeer is a protected species, so I would avoid eating it.
