1 October 2010 – no casualties, but . . .

Again I found a confused Lincoln’s Sparrow trapped on the east side of the building. It made me wonder if it actually hurts these birds to fly the “wrong” way when they’re on migration. It’d be so easy for this bird to escape by simply flying about 100 m north and proceeding around the NRC. But when I flush it, it flies E-W and S – it won’t go north, to freedom.
