Juvenile Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea) being scavenged by Weaver Ants (Oecophylla smaragdina)
Pasir Ris, 25th June 2016

This juvenile Grey Heron was found beneath a tree that was part of a nesting colony. It’s possible that it had fallen out of the nest and died before it had fledged. Another possibility is that it had died in the nest due to some other reason, and the parents removed the carcass.
