I just had the privilege of assisting (ever so slightly–I took photos) with a bird rescue. I’d noticed an American Avocet hanging around the pond at the local golf course, so I contacted the Tulsa Audubon Society and let them know. Today, on our way home from piano lessons, my son and I saw people at the pond trying to catch the bird. We stopped to see if we could help. The gentleman who lives across the street had a really good dog who also assisted. Here’s a few photos…
The Avocet is now being cared for by a veterinarian who specializes in rehabilitating wild animals.
Thanks go out to John Kennington, current President of the Tulsa Audubon Society, and Gail Storey, Vice-President.
And, of course, a special thanks to Zoe for her help in rescuing the Avocet!
While I was in California last month, I almost stepped on a Banana Slug. How I managed to miss it is a mystery, but when I doubled back from my walk (about 20 feet from where I found the slug) it was right there, bright as a banana! My kids would have LOVED to see it!
And that means time for the BIG sale!
