She was found lying in the woods, barely breathing with her helpless baby clinging to her. We believe she was hit by a car. She had severe head trauma, extreme hypothermia and was very thin and dehydrated. We brought her into our facility, warmed her up and started an IV. We honestly didn’t think she would make it, but we had to try – for her sake and for her baby.

We were so thankful that she slowly began to responded to our care. Every day she became more and more lively. After about three weeks of treatment she was able to be released. Knowing this mama Opossum and her baby had a second chance at life made all the effort worthwhile.

If you would like to support our efforts, we could really use the community’s help with some much needed supplies.

Red-tailed perched on a chimney scanning the marsh with its keen vision.

The Red-tailed Hawk’s vision is eight times more powerful than a human’s, allowing it see a small rodent such as a mouse or vole from 100 feet away. It dove into the tall dry grass making a loud crackly rushing sound but, came up empty-mouthed. Again it flew to the top of the Pink House chimney from where, only a few moments later, it made a second dive.


When diving to catch prey, their speed may exceed 120 miles per hour, and no joke, this Hawk’s speed appeared to increase as it became almost torpedo-like in shape.


Successful hunting! I only captured a photo of the second half of its flight from a distance; nonetheless, you can see the mouse (or vole) in its mouth in the last photo.

Dick and Jane Go Mattress Shopping

I ordered new sheets the other day and wanted to make sure the pockets were deep enough so the corners wouldn’t pop off.  I came across a term that I hadn’t heard before so I did a quick sheet size search to make sure I was getting the right set.  I came across this “cheat sheet” of sorts….  not sure why it made me laugh.  I can’t lie… I spent way too much time analyzing the different family scenarios….especially the last one.   It brought me back to learning to read with the Dick and Jane series.  Here’s some “fun facts” about Dick and Jane from MentalFloss
