” Blackbirds tend to like Shiny Things” ~ The Bloody Raven
I was just celebrating passing an exam on Monday with a drink that evening as I happen to pick up a local crafted micro-brew beer while out for a few groceries. I reached in my metal Coin organizer for a subject to study and write about but to mix things up I should comment about this delicious beer.
‘Shiny Things’ is a locally micro-brewed IPA made by the Steel & Oak Brewing Company in New Westminster BC. You can see that it’s a Golden opaque. A creamy texture, a full bodied delicious taste with a big accent on the barley, wheat, oat, and hop blend.
A definite colorful blend compared to the basic Kokanee and Molson Canadian fare. Shiny Things come in a 4 pack of tall cans, currently retails to a total of $18 CAD Deposit and Taxes included. My only drawback is it is 473 ml. I can only drink 2/3rds the can before I’m too buzzed to keep typing without too many typo errors.
Now to the real Shiny!
The Pink Pidgeon - Nesoenas Mayeri
A herbivore bird native to the Island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean located east of Madagascar. A bird species with its population decimated down to the last 10 birds and on the brink of extinction by the introduction of predatory animals and severe deforestation of this bird’s habitat and food source.
A desperate captive breeding program was instituted by the Durell Wildlife Conservation Trust on both the Republic of Mauritius and at the Jersey Zoo.
Over thirty years of work, the breeding program is successful in nursing the pink pigeon population from 16 to over 400 in 2018 from ‘Critically Endangered’ to ‘Vulnerable’ by the IUCN
In 1987 the World Wildlife Fund’s 25th Silver Anniversary recognizes the Durell Wildlife Conservation Trust in saving this bird species from extinction as well as a variety of other programs in preserving or supporting many other species that are currently deemed endangered.
I like this as it came with an inexpensive price compared to the Krause Catalog quote, fairly low mintage, and in many respects a pretty theme on the reverse. I expect this acquisition to appreciate well.
Now For those who love the Pretty Fiat Currency
What’s a Bailiwick?
From Vocabulary.com :
A bailiwick is an area of knowledge in which a person or institution has control or expertise

Synonyms for Bailiwick; jurisdiction, diocese, district, area, neighborhood
Where is Jersey?
It is not New Jersey.
