30 August 2014 – Carolina Chickadee

I found this Carolina Chickadee at the North Entrance to the NRC today, and it was pretty severely mangled by the ants and at least one large beetle.  I don’t know if I missed this bird from a day or two ago (unlikely given it’s conspicuous location), of if these insects have just been able to tear into it with ferocious rapidity.
