Sad news

We lost BE 06- 41 to a bone infection. The repair done in November wasn't healing and the bone above the break was extremly brittle. There was no telling how far the infection had spread.

We know we can't save them all, but there should be a special rule for the young ones.

Yes, a rule for all birds, children, puppies and kittens.

It sucks. But at least he had a chance.
How many others never get found, and die alone?

That's very sad news, dave. You do your best, and sometimes, they still die. It's a heartbreak.

Hard to do, but I guess you have to focus your energies on the birds that can be saved.

Sorry.

All so true. Still a major bummer.
