Dead bird delivery boy.

My wonderful mum found this Black-naped Oriole (Oriolus chinensis) below the block. She immediately went up and got a ziplock bag, placed the bird in and put it in a cooler box for easy transportation.

Shows that you don’t need to be a scientist to help out in research. Thanks mum! You’re the best!
