    Nice to hear Dee. I suspect the bird was struck by a passing car as sometimes they fly very low. Happy endings are good! :)

    Lets not over react here. The police know (or have a good idea) who the perps are. I seriously doubt they are going to be stopping tourists, residents or over wintering people for no reason.
