And a partridge in a pear tree. Your whole family is one sweetie after the next. No photos of the new babies?

Later on this evening when they're all feeding I'll try to get some shots.

There are some new baby photos of an opossum posted by Lib. The title of the thread made me nervous so I didn't click on it until curiosity got the best of me. She's posted the cutest darn little opossum photos. The little opossum was all head. The baby photos are my favorites of all photos everyone posts. I'm looking forward to your baby photos.

It's been a while since I posted any of our babies. I keep thinking the parade will slow down but it doesn't seem as is it's going to be any time soon. I'm posting the pictures that I can find....evidently I saved some to a folder that I don't know. Well, I probably know the folder, but I'm unaware of exactly which folder I put them in....

These are three of the four Carolina Wrens.

Hopefully I'll locate the pictures of the robin, mockingbirds and doves.

You are worth your weight in platinum. Birds are tough.

This morning was a busy one on our island. One of our neighbors told us there was an injured owl down by their house so we grabbed towel, kennel and camera and headed off down the road. Sure enough we found the owl and he was sitting on the ground hiding behind some bushes. I tried to get a shot, but he had himself hidden pretty well. The first time we attempted to drape him with a towel he flew away into the woods. It took us a little while but we managed to locate him and luckily he was again on the ground. This time we were successful in draping him.

We loaded the owl into a kennel and took off for the vet. Our assumption at first was that he had been hit by a car or something. Once we got him to the vet we realized that this was not the case. I have no idea what fight this owl got in but his neck was pretty chewed up all the way around it. Unfortunately the owl did not make it. The owl was a Great Horned Owl. I have never in my life seen one so up close. The bird was beautiful and the eyes were just simply amazing. It tugged at my heart that we were unable to save him, but this is something you have to accept when you're dealing with rehabilitation of any kind.

The thing that is saddest to me is that I think the death could have been avoided if we had gotten to him earlier. As we were attempting to drape him one of the neighbors that was watching commented on the fact he had seen him hanging around here the last few days. If only someone had let us know earlier he may have had a better chance.

Disturbing.

What can WG do?

Our List of Native Plant Nurseries garners attention from guests. A list of wildlife rehabbers may garner attention from guests too.

We can begin creating lists.

I have a rehabber that I can list. I might be the only person on the forum within 150 miles of her, but maybe people will find a thread here through a search engine? (Uh-oh. I think that this how I got started with the snag photo contest--go easy on me, will you Fearless Weeder? )
