The bird almost spoiled a televised world record attempt before it was killed with an air rifle.Here's the memorial website. I can't really picture what the TV show was like. Why is the news from the Netherlands always so odd?
The shooting caused a public outcry. Animal rights groups condemned the bird's killing last month and a website was erected in its honour....
The organisers argued the killing was justified, as more than 100 people had worked for a month setting up [four million] dominoes, but they held a TV memorial for the bird.

Will be displayed -- on top of a box of dominoes -- in Rotterdam's Natural History Museum.
