I am an American Robin
We migrate to Florida, but we don't all survive
There are hazards along the way, such as predators
And, as my friend found out, power lines.

(David and I found the above bird directly under some power lines. There was no sign of predation, so we surmised that it must have hit the powerline during a period of low visibility, maybe night or fog.)

Location: St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park, Fellsmere
