Just a general question here. When the rest of you add birds to your life
lists do you include ones that were observed only because they were dead
(road kills, radio towers, window-strikes ...)? I feel a little guilty
about it but justify it thinking that they were at least wild birds and not
in an aviary or zoo. Opinions?
I ask because we had a _black-billed cuckoo_ die after a window strike today
and my daughter has begun a life-list.
Also, my son had the opportunity this morning to observe _killdeer_ parents
in distraction mode at the Lion's Park in Battle Lake, MN. We did
eventually find their 3 fluffy chicks and one as yet unhatched egg. We'll
show my daughter after school and get some pictures.
