Hanging by a wire

One of the stranger things I've seen in my years as a birder/consultant - a Horned Lark hanging dead from a hydro wire.

It was there for multiple weeks - hanging the same way... I would guess that a predator brought it there, and it somehow got stuck (or froze?) there... Pretty odd... Any ideas? 

(better times)

  1. I have watched this type of stranding of Storm Petrels being driven backwards into hydro wires by strong/gale winds
