This was an awful lesson.
I have learned that if a huge bird crashes into your picture window of your beach house, dying on your front porch chair, and you want to move it for Other Creatures to dispose of it for you and return it to nature from whence it came, then you must move it FAR!
Like get a shovel and bring it to the beach!
Because otherwise those Other Creatures will do their work, surely enough, within hours, but they will leave ALL the feathers right there in front of the porch !!
