One of those old words that seems to have gathered several meanings through time. Poppinjay was a once common name for a parrot but is also used as an insult, implying someone is all noise and show but very little substance. This example is on a church window but has been heavily processed to produce the image you see here. The guide at the church tells me the Popinjay was a mythical creature and this window is many hundreds of years old so possibly Popinjay as a mythincal animal pre-dates other uses of the word.
