Rest in Peace, Little Birdy

Some of you might have seen dead birds before.
It might be a Rock Pigeon, Common Myna, Javan Myna or a sparrow.
Well, I had recently encountered a dead bird which was most likely a female Asian Koel. It was found dead near Jurong East interchange.

I found this Asian Koel dead. I was on my way home from Jurong Bird park. There were ants surrounding it. There was a hole where the eye was supposed to be. This proved that the bird had been dead for a few hours.

My brother threw a mealworm at the ants. You might not see the mealworm in this picture...
