I didn't know they could do orthotics for birds. A captive eagle had a foot problem. They solved it elegantly and humanely. A great story to brighten your day.

If you do not know what's happening, Florida is adding Evolution as a science to the school curriculum. There was a hearing in Orlando, where lots of kooks came out of the woodwork to talk against this "theory". Especially interesting is this learned gentleman talking about oranges and cats.
It would be funny if it weren't so pathetic.

I have been on a photography outing with our internet photo-club this past few days. We visited Merrit Island NWR and Viera Wetlands, near Titusville Florida. I have many bird photos to process and will be posting soon.
