I headed to the garden with the sole purpose of making a visible dent in that stupid back corner that I've been forking FOREVER!
The Injury Report: Falkor
Well, I thought the injured wildlife would slack off after the spring... but I keep meeting them.
The other day I saw a crow with a hurt foot or leg. It must have been a new injury because she was trying to stand on it, but had to flutter her wings because the foot wouldn't take her weight.
And now I've seen her three times, so she gets a name: Falkor. Falkor was a male Luck Dragon, true. But I'm calling this crow a she.
She doesn't flutter her wings any more to stand, but keeps her balance on the good foot, holding the right one up.
The Injury Report: male Mallard
I've not seen the male Mallard with the broken wing in weeks. But he lived so long with his bad wing... I mean, it must have been healing, tho he prob isn't going to fly again. and I kinda wonder if he didn't just go upstream or downstream, instead of to the big duck pond in the sky.
So, yeah, it's dumb, he's probably dead. But I do keep a lookout for him.
The Injury Report: Hattie
It turns out that Hattie, the baby squirrel with the head tilt, is a boy! Ha. But that means he will probably disperse to live in a different area. I do still see him, now and then, eating the nuts my neighbor sets out... But he's obviously well enough to survive life in the city, even with whatever issue is causing the head tilt, whether it be a brain injury or an inner ear problem. Good for him!
