January 27, 2018

Location: Lake Apopka, Magnolia Park

Here lies an Eastern Phoebe
Unfortunately recently demised.
In addition to natural predators,
Sometimes cars catch birds by surprise.

While it's quite unfortunate for the bird
Death is not always just ugly
It can also provide opportunity
For scientific study.
