The NUS Kent Ridge campus serves as a hotspot for migrating birds, but not all of them make it through alive.

This female Jambu Fruit Dove (Ptilinopus jambu), for instance, died today after flying into a glass door at the NUS Computer Centre. It’s since been taken back to the Avian Evolution lab for DNA sampling and preservation.
