The Faithful Bird

When a sparrow was clipped by a car’s antenna and mortally injured, this series of shots was taken as its companion brought her food and tried to comfort her.

When the companion returned from getting more food, the female had died.

The companion bird then tried to move its mate and cried in despair as it realized that its companion was gone.

According to the photographer, the bird stayed with its dead mate for hours before finally flying away.
