Tattered Black-headed Gull
When birdwatching, everything is not perfect. Sometimes I witness a raptor chasing and/or capturing a smaller bird; I see birds that look like they have battled for their life; I have seen great birds like a Merlin dead on the roadway; and occasionally, I come upon a bird in the wild that just didn't make it. All of these things are a part of the bird watching experience. After all, in Nature it is all about the survival of the fittest.
