Male Subalpine Warbler
Male Subalpine Warbler of eastern race. Found dead on the deck of a vessel approximately a days steaming west of Athens.

This bird was obviously crossing the Mediterranean on its spring migration, 12 March 2010. Strong headwinds were blowing at the time and this bird either died of exhaustion or collided with something onboard during the hours of darkness - I suspect the latter.
