Unintended Visitor

By: Greg Martin,
Medical Services Volunteer

A few weekends ago, I helped my father, a former Navy corpsman who served in Vietnam, suture a white-winged dove that had been accosted by a dog. We have been working a Medical Services shift at Liberty together for nearly fifteen years, and this dove was one of the worst that I had ever seen. He had deep puncture wounds near his shoulders, and his chest was slit open like an alien autopsy from a conspiracy show. From his neck to his breastbone, everything was open to the world, including his crop, the intermediary chamber where swallowed food goes before being passed to the stomach for digestion.

Curious Condor

You’ve probably seen the pictures of the little moorhen on the Hoots and Hollers blog. The baby arrived covered in down and with her eyes open, like all precocial hatchlings. But this strange-looking bird was one only a mother could love. Wispy feathers stuck out around her large eyes, and a bald spot showed black skin on the top of her head. Strangest yet were the claw-like spurs growing on the ends of her tiny wings. And my goodness, those enormous feet!

Monarch Butterfly

Let’s take a look at a few more easy changes to help cut down on water use and waste. Patronizing a car wash that either recycles water on site or sends the used water (grey water) to a treatment plant is often the most water-efficient way to wash your vehicle. Washing your vehicle at home can use up to 148 gallons of water or more for one washing, especially if you leave the hose running without an automatic shut-off nozzle.
