Description

Relatively large, heavily built ant (between 2-3 inches) that seemingly had a suicide mission to be taken out by a Ruddy turnstone. It marched for about 5 minutes in a straight line directly to the foraging bird instead of at any time veering to the left to safety. Only those photos that may prove useful to identification linked (In which the ant is marginally in focus).
