Hi Tweeters,
This a.m. while on my way to work I stopped to check out a bird which was
sitting on the roadway. It turned out to be a Western Wood Peewee. It was
hit by a car but still alive. It was too early in the morning to take it to
a rescue facility so I drove back home with bird in hand. Fixed up a place
for it to recover if it was to be so. Sadly, it died. I wondered if any of
you are interested in this one for scientific purposes. I will keep it cold
for a few days to preserve it for that purpose.
