Observation details

Found dead on road, recently consumed by predator judging by moist skeletal elements (and it hadn't rained). Surely killed and eaten during the night of 2-3 Jan. Identified as this rather than Japanese by blackish crown. Feathers organized for photos. Remains still present through morning of 5 Jan. This is a new record for Obi and for Maluku, I believe.
