Sad Little Bird

Last week, my friend Isra told me about a strange scene that she had encountered on her way to work. Coming upon a dead bird on the sidewalk, someone had decided to place a flower as a memorial. Very nice gesture, I tracked it down in order to make this picture.

Sad and sweet.

Looks to be a Hermit Thrush. Sigh. Lots of dead birds on our sidewalks now, during migration. Check out Chicago Bird Collision Monitors (http://www.birdmonitors.net/intro.html.)

This makes me feel sadly erotic.
