Last weekend, a friend of mine who lives up in Trinity County, saw this on the side of the road. As he got closer, it didn't move, so he was thinking that it was injured. The bird tried to fly, but only glided into some tall grass at the edge of the lake. My friend waded into the water (knee deep) with a blanket and caught the bird.

Then, he held it in the blanket and rode in the back of a pickup truck to a nearby resort, where they waited for the bird rescue worker to arrive and take the bird...

Fortunately, unlike his "the fish was THIS BIG, but I let it go" story, the guy driving behind them had a camera and took some pictures...

I'm sure this is something he will talk about for the rest of his life :cool:

Very Cool!

On Tuesday, we were walking down to the garage to get something early in the AM, and heard a loud SCREEEECH from up in a redwood tree next to the garage. Looked up and saw a pretty big hawk being divebombed by some finches. Pretty awesome sight. It was the next day we saw our friend and he told us his story about the Baldie. We decided not to share our story :o
