Ode to my hawk

 The hawk that I have been caring for, for over 21 years now, has not been faring well.  She has lost some of her appetite and has lost weight.  She developed an infection of some kind and now needs medicine daily.  We are all keeping a close eye on her, and she's in good hands.

Ironically, my daughter is doing an Internship at a Raptor Rehab center and at a Wildlife Discovery Center, and has just held her first Hawk!  Since then she's handled owls and other birds, too.  Yes, I'm proud.  That's my girl.
One door closes, and another one opens.

  1. Oh Anni, my heart breaks for you and your hawk. It is the way, we are to lose those we care for. Still, that doesn't make it easy. I will hope her care goes the way it is supposed to and that you find comfort that your daughter will repeat your loving care. That's a reward of its own.
