To the editor:
I wonder, every time I see the crows together, lined up on the light pole, preening each other — how long will they stay together? Is the shortness of their life in the wild, like ours in captivity? How much sorrow does the bird feel?
I rescue throwaway parrots. It takes them several years to recover from the loss of their significant other (usually a human). I know, I can feel every pain the owl or the crow or the goose feels when they look for their mate, only to hear a missing hoot or caw or honk.
Thank you, Kol Medina, for your service to the wild ones. Everyone will miss your amazing work. Thank you for your awesome column in the Review. I am so grateful for the work of West Sound Wildlife Shelter and especially grateful for the way it has grown under Kol Medina’s leadership. Everyone will miss you!
