    You can plan all you want, but when animals are involved it may not go accordingly.

    (these are not exactly N&W forum worthy I know - but I figured you guys may get a kick out of them - and what are you going to do, report me? )

    Anyway, I was attending a festival organized by our local wildlife rescue/sanctuary. One of the highlights was the release of a RT hawk which was being rehabilitated over the last 7 weeks.

    So, the countdown to the release...

    Then the majestic flight away from the clapping, cheering group...

    Towards a perch, on top, ... of a silo?...

    No, rather, the side of a silo

    Attention was diverted while the handlers tried to reach it. But it flew off on its own a few minutes later.

    Climbing is an overly normal game as it is done in normally laid pinnacles. Around evening time, it must continue expanding the delight and beguilement all around and this is the way improve your writing skills. Ideally a superior plan to go through end of the week.
