Okay, On Second Thought...

Still no success in freeing the baby eagle found in Rachel's yard, as the last few attempts have resulted in the confused young thing soaring close to the ground before crashing into field after field. It's suspected that her wings aren't quite strong enough yet so the wildlife experts have been treating her to various perching and flapping exercises, shown here in Rachel's wacky send-up on action movie trailers in anticipation of the Big Day.

Stay tuned for more as it rolls in!

For The Birds

My photographer friend Rachel took these photos and video of a 3-4 month old female bald eagle chick being rescued in her backyard yesterday. Lisa Barlow from the terrific Hampton Roads-based Wildlife Response picked it right up, bare hands and everything! They think she may have fallen from her nest and is either too young or too confused to fly, but she's at the vet today and if all is well she'll be released back into Rachel's neighborhood this afternoon.

The music she chose for the video clip is "Me And The Eagle" by Steve Earle. This "baby" had herself a 6-foot wingspan!

Gil Scott-Heron, 1949-2011

I first heard Gil Scott-Heron back in the late 80's, freshman year of college, where Joe and I found a 12" single to his reflections on the decade "B Movie". BUt it would be a few years later when I would finally hear the one he was most noted for...

Since then there have been many more...

And some that continue to play in my head, like whenever I ride the metro in D.C.

And even the last album that he put out a few months ago still packs a punch.

RIP Gil. You finally deserve it.
