as i was walking to the main building
this morning to donate blood,
i came across this in the parking lot:

the covered parking area for the chief officers is a haven for birds of all kinds, despite being equipped with netting and annoying chirping boxes designed to keep them away. (it is also the haven for the obstinate people who refuse to quit smoking and continue to pollute us all with their second-hand cancer air. /rant)

anyway, there obviously was a nest above that spot and the hatchling sadly fell from it. it's too bad the amer-avian red cross couldn't get to it in time, although a blood transfusion probably wasn't the right medicine for its problems.

however, by the time i returned an hour later, it had been smushed by a motorcycle.
