An interesting tidbit regarding the finding of fatalities of bird strikes in the Omaha area was noted on September 13.
In the morning a dead Ruby-throated Hummingbird was noted in the plaza area of the Central Park Plaza building. The location was noted and a picture was taken. In looking into previous records for this species, it was surprising to find that a Ruby-throated Hummingbird had been found dead at the same exact place a year ago, on September 13, 2008.
Hummingbird noted in 2008.
Hummingbird noted in 2009.
What is was that brought this species to the same place on the same date and with the same result is a mystery of nature that will have to remain unexplained.
