Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
It's been a week of ups and downs for me. On the up side: I repaired my broken futon myself and the guys at the hardware store, when consulted, said that my plan was how they would have done it, as well.

On the down side: our one active nest (this year has been tough on our ospreys) of ospreys got attacked by a bald eagle two days in a row. One juvenile was killed and eaten, and the second only survived because Mama fought back. The juvenile was slightly injured and in shock, and out of the nest and on the ground. The decision was made to send her to Avian Haven (a bird rehab center) because that way she at least has a fighting chance of survival, which she would not if put back in the nest, as the eagle would keep coming back until it finally succeeded in killing her, too. To say I am not fond of bald eagles is putting it mildly. I have more fondness for pigeons and gulls than I do eagles.
