REST In PEACE, NIGEL

Chat - - True-life -

Alonely gan­net that tried to woo a statue on Mana Is­land, New Zealand, has died. Nigel ar­rived on the is­land in 2015, where fake birds had been placed to try and at­tract a colony...and fell for one de­coy. He lived with the fake for three years, even build­ing a nest and per­form­ing mat­ing rit­u­als to win it over. Nigel, who got his name as he had no friends, was found dead next to his con­crete mis­sus.
