    No fault.
    It couldn't collect though- it was dead.

    I worked one summer for the University of Montana doing bird research in northern Arizona (got to live in a tent for 4 months on the Mogollon Rim, so that was cool). One day I was tracking a hermit thrush (smallish brown bird that, as the name implies, likes to hide) trying to find its nest site. After 4 hours of following this bird around, I was pretty sure we were circling in on its nest, and was looking forward to end this overly long track. All of a sudden there was a loud whooshing noise in the woods, and out of nowhere a sharp shinned hawk came swooping in and obliterated the thrush in a spray of feathers. I was so pissed at that hawk. I got to see her a few weeks later, though- we had a crew on that study plot mist netting, and I was checking in on them when they caught the hawk. They are all sharp claws and razor beak- pretty awesome sight. It took four of us to disentangle her and hold her for measurements.

    As long as the premiums were paid at the time of death, the carrier would be on the hook to indemnify the estate. .

    The Glass seems to be undamaged, although there was a small feather stuck to it for a few hours.

    I wasn't sure what made the imprint was made from. But the answer is in the link you added later in the thread. Thanks for finding that.
