dead baby bird  
 This morning I ventured outside to see if my nasturtiums were coming up and stepped on something squishy.   At first I thought it was a plum, but upon further examination I discovered it had a beak.   I am fairly sure it was not alive when I stepped on it, especially since its sibling was lying quite dead halfway down the path.   

The front of our house is covered with ivy, and lately we have discovered six bird nests in it.

I am unable to purge that disgusting image (dead bird, not ivy) from my mind, and now I've given it to you.   Sorry.

Any tips on how to purge nasty images?   I have some that are five and six years old and they really bug me when they suddenly pop into my mind and I can't get rid of them.   One of them I thought I purged by fantasizing attacking the person who had given it to me with a giant water pistol, but it came back.   

If you're looking for a photo of a dead baby bird, here is one, but it is not MY dead baby bird. 

Meantime, how do you get rid of persistent nasty images?   They are worse than earworms, which at least can be purged by singing a different song, and which don't put you off your feed.

Somebody anonymous posted an ad for pigeon control on this blog. I assure you, these are not pigeons. They are some sort of sweet little bird -- maybe finches -- and I don't want to kill them.

I did take down the ivy. But I still would like help in expunging the mental image of a squashed baby bird.
