Osler

An osler was a bird catcher of old. I could wax lyrical about my birds & feathers for days, and to think that you could spend your days tracking and catching birds makes me think that perhaps there are echoes of an osler in me. The details surrounding oslers are a little hazy, so let's use our imaginations. I imagine a solitary character, who had a very inconspicuous manner. Always dressed in earthy tones, this trader always carried a satchel with a stale loaf of bread inside – just the sort of fodder to entice a starling. He was hard to pin down and often you wouldn't see him for months at a time as he meandered over the countryside on the trail of flighty friends. Definitely an early-riser.
