Magpie birds mourn the passing of their loved ones through rituals similar to funerals.  Some have been viewed laying ‘wreaths’ of grass alongside roadside corpses.

EXCEPT THAT THE PICTURE IS AN AUSTRALIAN MAGPIE AND THIS FACT IS ABOUT EURASIAN MAGPIES!  THEY’RE TOTALLY DIFFERENT BIRDS

One Lichen Species Is Actually 126, And Probably More
“Until ten years ago, scientists talked about the lichen Dictyonema glabratum as if it were a single species. Its large, conspicuous, and elegant fronds are found throughout the Americas, and many teams have studied its chemistry and ecology. But until Robert Lücking from the Field Museum started looking at its genes, no one realised the most startling truth about D.glabratum: it’s actually 126 different species of lichen, and possibly hundreds more.
It’s “the most spectacular case of unrecognized species richness” in any group of large organisms, says Lücking.”
