Quiz time: Win a copy of Boleyn, Tudor Vampire

It's Quiz time! I know the Anne Boleyn junkies are probably going to get the first one pretty quickly so I had to throw in a vampire question too.

1. There was a bird in Anne Boleyn's Greenwich garden whose screams drove her mad. What was that bird?
2. In the 18th century, what food may have given rise to the belief in vampires?

Leave your answer in the comments below. The first person to answers both questions correctly wins a copy of  Boleyn Tudor Vampire by Cinsearae S.

This one is for the US folks only.

Reminder: I will be giving away a copy of Heart of Lies by M.L. Malcolm to a lucky newsletter subscriber this week. If you are not a newsletter subscriber then you can subscribe here.

2. I don't know what food in particular, but if the Eastern Europeans were eating meat from Rabid animals or bitten while tending rabid animals, they in turn could contract rabies, which in the 18th century was mistaken for Vampirism. Maybe rye in their bread, making them hallucinate, such as with the Salem witch trials.

1. Peacock
2. Rye bread (I know there's a theory that ergot--a rye bread mold that can provoke hallucinations--may have been partially to blame for some of the witch hysteria over the years, so why not vampires?)
