Lynched Openbill

Sorry about the quality of the image.

I found this situation a bit too surreal to ignore.  It's an Asian Openbill.  It appears that the bird met its death by hanging. Adding to the bizarreness is the cross-like feature on the rope or branch.  The critter has been up there for several days now, surveying the rice field, ignorant of the thunderstorms.
