lookin' good


there's been a crow thrashing around, apparently dyin, on our deck all afternoon. I'm not sure what to do. The New Jersey Dept. of Health and Senior Services Infectious and Zoonotic Disease Program does not believe in answering machines or voicemail.

lookin' good

oh good!

The NBII site just had their regular #.

http://www.state.nj.us/health/cd/izdphome.htm had the weekend on-call number.

Pam's been saying she's been seeing dead birds (not crows) a couple of times over the last month.

This is the first one that died on our deck.

It could have hit a window, or the power lines, but it just wasn't acting like that sort of trauma.

Anyway, it's bagged and in the fridge. (Latex gloves and some apprehension...ewww!) I'll take it to get tested tomorrow.
