Translation: This is the new addition to my hobby taxidermy collection; A dead crow that I found along a country road. I discovered a hole in its back when I examined the crow (It was clear that someone had shot it with a rifle.) I felt very lucky, for it was evident that it had died recently. If one wants to preserve parts of dead animals, it is necessary that the animal has been dead a very short time. Or else, flies and other insects will leave traces that are impossible to remove. This time I try to preserve the legs in addition to preparing the skull. I cut out the eyes with a perfect cut, and was a little sad when I discovered that I have no formalin to put them in. I need something that I can use as an excuse if I get tired of any guests I may have. Then, I can say something like; "I think you have to go home for the crow eyes are giving you an evil stare right now"
