Subject: RE: Folklore: Execution by tying fish on head+bird
I don't think the colourful people in the movie would go for the more boring options, myself.
I'm with Ned about the cleverness of gannets. And gulls -- wouldn't they just perch on the guy's head and nibble the fish off. That's what they do when they find stranded fish on top of rocks, surely.
A tern-coat would that be gnomad?
