Death of a Hummingbird

HB Our neighbor found this hummingbird in an indentation of a tree trunk, low to the ground.    I think it is a Black-chinned Hummingbird. It appears to have hit the tree and broken its neck.

As I watched, mother nature began to step in:

HBAntThe ant, looking enormous next to the tiny bird, thoroughly examined the remains, and was still meandering around when I left.  It will be interesting to see what, if any, remains tomorrow morning.
