I received an email with this story and accompanying photos and tried to find the source online. I could not find the original source, but did find some variations of the details of the story and sequence of events. But I think you'd agree that these photos speak for themselves.
The basic story goes something like this: A flock of birds had stopped on a highway (somewhere in the Ukraine) perhaps just taking a rest or maybe they had spotted a bit of food. A vehicle passed by and (1) one of the birds was injured and unable to move from the roadway. Her mate lingers nearby offering solace and eventually (2) he brings food to her. On one of his return trips he finds his mate dead and (3) seems to try to shake her awake. Aware that she is lost to him (4) he cries out in obvious anguish. Every time a car passes, the bird flies off for a moment but then returns to mourn, his heart clearly broken. Eventually the photographer, concerned for the safety of the living bird, put down his camera, picked up the bird and removed it from the road. The grieving bird lingered in a nearby tree, "crying" and reluctant to move on. I don't know what species of bird this is, but I think it could truly be considered a "love bird."
The complete set of photos was supposedly published in a French newspaper and was so popular that the edition sold out (or so the "story" goes). I guess everyone loves a love story -- even one with a sad ending.
