…four colley birds. (yep, not calling, but colley)
Not only common but, in the Middle Ages the terms collie(colley) and blackbird were frequently applied to any type of bird that was black including, starlings.
During the Middle Ages and Tudor times, starlings were among various types of wild local birds that were kept in cages as pets. Various types of blackbirds were also eaten as food along with other game birds. So the lover’s gift in this case was one of food or a pet.
So let's take a break from the feasting of wild game hens and discuss a pet. Pets are wonderful gifts for just about anyone. Is there a pet you have received or given that really changed your life?
I know here there are service dogs that have saved lives and those who just love us no matter what our day is like.
