And for those of you who might have seen the allegations of Blackwater in Donets'k (despite my Tweet-attempt to intercept the Daily Mail reporter who took the bait and shouted 'Blackwater!' in a crowded geopolitical community), I have compiled a quick and dirty list of why these claims are specious at best: goo.gl/yMVc0h
A T-37 instructor pilot was decapitated when a sand hill crane came through his windshield at 320 knots, but no student was on board. The other pilot, also an instructor, flew the headless body home. A solo student in a T-38 hit a flock of cranes and lost one engine and his windshield, but not his head. He landed the plane, barely able to see through the bird blood on his helmet visor. Instead of a hero’s welcome, he was reprimanded for not bailing out. -- Howard Morland (http://goo.gl/tCJiSA)

On Sunday, I was alerted by a clamorous murder to the trouble: two maimed and bleeding Crows whom I captured and promptly delivered to Project Wildlife. One did not open the right eye and had an open sore near the left hallux, in addition to a wounded wing . Suffering was evident, and at best, I hoped for humane death. The other was active and vocal but grounded by wing injury and in the sights of a cat. An administrative assistant at Project Wildlife notified me yesterday that the latter Crow survived and is being nursed for re-release, while the former did not make it.
A few weeks ago, I was sort of a "first responder" to a guy I found lying unconscious on the curb. After the guy regained partial consciousness, the paramedics interrogated him as would law enforcement officers rather than like healthcare professionals and promptly shooed me away. It was at that moment when I was thinking that it would be nice to receive a courtesy update on the status of the patient . . . well, it is for the birds, at least!
In any case, I was very grateful to rely on Project Wildlife this time both for the mannerly intake and follow-up!
