Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

He's at it again, Laura!


Oh, Rickeybird!

But seriously, it's an inspirational day...
https://nationaltoday.com/national-bird-day/
"HISTORY OF NATIONAL BIRD DAY
Whether they’re your backyard’s star cardinal or the common pigeons that flock to and fro in the park, birds have always held a spot of fascination, love, and adoration in our hearts. There’s a certain awe that can only be tapped into when watching an eagle soar. Unfortunately, most birds are either endangered or protected, this is mostly due to habitat loss or illegal pet trade.
That’s why the Avian Welfare Coalition created National Bird Day: to raise awareness of the hardships and plights of these important animals and how we can initiate the change needed to create a healthier, more sustainable relationship with them.
Birds are often considered living links to the past, being the closest-related animals to the evolution of dinosaurs. They’re often keystone species in the ecosystems, signifiers of its health and vitality. For example, the holes left behind by woodpeckers are often used as homes for a large variety of other animals. That means if woodpeckers were to run out of a food source – or out of the right kinds of trees – so, too, would all the animals dependent on their pecking skills.
While National Bird Day may be relatively new, having been founded in 2002, the adversity that birds have had to face is nothing novel to the animal kingdom. Just ask the Dodo, the Labrador Duck, or the Passenger Pigeon, considered sacred by many Native American tribes and often the subject of many works of American art until its demise."

Julio was in full celebration mode yesterday and with great luck, no children where wounded and general adult blood loss was at a minimum!

Happy the wonderful day past without a hospital run...

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

The effects of suffering the elongated social distancing and lockdown Nationally and Worldwide. International turmoil as different countries approach limiting resources, especially 'online' time in areas that do not have the national bandwidth enjoyed by other nations. Add the effects of limited medical services and individuals avoiding medial support that when they do need it the stay commonly is extended. Plus any number of other emotional and physical effects caused when our social self is limited.

Sorry for the intrigue, but near everyone is effected very differently by this Worldwide Monster Virus. Some stories I know, others are little more than a guess based on much, maybe too much, on what and where.

Huge Warm Amazon Feather Hugs and Heartfelt Prayers for each!!!
