Upper Description

I'm a woodworker and a leather artist/crafter. Photography and astronomy are my passions.

I'm descended from the Shawnee Chief Cornstalk who was killed in 1777.

I am also of Scots-Irish descent and VERY proud of my heritage and my culture. I do not apologize for my culture, nor am I "politically correct", and do not tolerate others who think that it is a necessity to be so.

Bird rescue today

I went outside a little while ago and there was a Wood Thrush running around outside my door on the ground. That in itself is not too unusual, but this one didn't fly away after I got within a foot of it, so I walked up to it and (after it running around for a minute) picked it up.

It is a young adult, but fearing that the dogs may decide it was their toy, or that it may have a broken wing, I decided to get it and help it out for a while.

We have many songbirds that nest on our property ranging from several varieties of woodpecker and cardinals, to wrens and many other animals besides birds. And seeing as how I was practically raised in a zoo (my mom has always raised exotics animals and rescues ranging from lions and cougars to monkeys and coatimundies) I have a natural affection for all things wild.

So I shall help it out until it's back to health and then let it go again and hopefully all will be well.

Did you finally release the bird and did it make it?

I hope so.

Secondly, what doubts I had about you being gay were completely erased upon learning you're in to sewing and so on.

I keed, I keed. Nothing wrong with sewing I guess... for gay people! I joke! :P

Unfortunately, the bird died within almost 24 hours. I suspect sever neurological damage or west nile virus, perhaps. We do have the latter in the area and all.
