    I don't really know if this should be on the Birds and Animals, Macros, General, or "Oh my God, that's weird forums", but I thought y'all might like to see it (even if it is a bit gross).

    The original site has been swamped with traffic, so this is a TinyURL pointing to the Google cache of the site (hope it works for everyone):

    Amazing. Sad, but amazing.
     
  3. That's really bizarre. I would have never thought an insect would attack and kill a bird. Interesting.
     
  4. WOW! That is a first for me.
