Poor Thing!

My son opened the door to take some trash to the dumpster and found a dead bird on our doorstep, in intact condition, well developed, its little legs sticking straight into the air. One of its bird friends fluttered back and forth to it trying to rouse it...it was so pathetic and sad. And so odd.

The first thing I thought of was it was a gift from a cat that had decided to adopt us.
But it ddn't seem to have any injuries, and it was a baby bird, so it isn't as if it fell from its nest.

It didn't look scruffy or ill, it was just dead.

Weird. I suppose there is a message in there somewhere but I don't know what it would be.
