A couple of sick, skinny peregrine falcons have been brought into Wildwoods Wildlife Rehabilitation recently ... one didn't live to be transported to The Raptor Center but the one pictured at left did.

How could anyone with a heart resist an "abandoned" fawn or a baby bird flopping helplessly on the ground?

The compassion isn't the problem at this time of year; the problem is what you don't know you don't know in order to really help.

Luckily for us, Wildwoods is there - on the phone or online - to help.

A baby bison in Yellowstone was euthanized this week after a visitor to the park thought it had become separated from its mother and put the calf in his car.

McTavish Quilting Studio

Duluth artist Karen McTavish is celebrating this Saturday with an open studio in honor of National Quilting Day.  

Longtime quilter and author, McTavish opened her quilting studio last June across from Chester Creek Cafe on 8th street in Duluth and has been creating new work and teaching others in her warehouse style space.

If Laura Erickson has taught us anything over the last almost-thirty years, it's that animals think - and act - like animals, not humans.  So when we see the baby fawn all alone or the little bird out of it's nest, our human oh-my-gosh-it's-an-infant-alone-in-the-woods instinct kicks in and we rush to help.
