I am a dabbler. I am a creator. I am a teacher. Among my hobbies are lapidary, carving, sewing, cooking, poetry, short stories, world design, game design, roleplay, photography, graphic manipulation and creation, DJing, bump making, parody writing, remixing, recording parodies, altering and decorating hats and clothes, making walking sticks, staffs, and canes, and generally anything else that comes into my head. I cannot draw to save my life, but I love to read, I love to create, I love to reach out and touch the lives of others, and be touched in turn. I am a husband. I am a father. I am a bird owner. I am student. I am too many things for a brief paragraph to possibly communicate. So come know me, and let me know you. On KoL I am known as the DJ Prima Vera Angelhair.

Over the last couple of years my personal style has really... evolved. I've changed, and I've pushed a lot of my skills to new limits. I keep pushing them farther, learning more, and seeing just what I can do in myriad fields. I enjoy sharing what I learn with others, and hope to both take and give inspiration in the process.

Raccoon Journal 3 - Enter the Foxes

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 5, 2015, 2:36 AM
This journal is from my third week this year of volunteer work at our county wildlife rescue center, on June 6th.  It was quite the interesting week, as I was sent in to cut back the trees in the big aviary, quite the task.  This week also saw many new arrivals.

Not all of the interesting animals around the center are in need of rescue. Take this common House Wren, nesting in a gourd-made birdhouse hanging on the center grounds.  A bold little bird, it likes to scold those who get too close to its nest.

Here is the Aviary after I was through with it.

We are up to three Goslings this week.

Not all tales end happily when you do rescue work; last year an injured baby Red-Tailed Hawk, later named Eragon, was raised at the center.  I mistook the bird below for it, but later learned that Eragon sadly had to be put down; his injuries never did heal well, and simply caused him too much pain.  His life would not have been a good one, sadly.  I know little of this hawk save that it was imprinted on humans and so cannot be released, and so has become another permanent resident.  At present he's Vinnie's new roommate, and I think my favorite turkey vulture will be good for him.

There are two other Red-Tailed Hawks at the center presently, both babies who came in separately and are being raised up with the hopes of release.  Here they are getting some outside time in a makeshift nest.

With the arrival of another fawn we're up to three this week.

Another new and interesting arrival: a pair of White Foxes.  They are technically domesticated but were found living feral, and their previous caretaker can no longer look after them due to illness, so they are currently residents at the center.  Whether they will remain or find another situation remains to be seen, but this illustrates the difficulties there can be with unusual animals, especially when those who look after them need looking after themselves.

As always, there are the raccoons, including this new arrival in an incubator and a tiny fellow with a healing leg.

Lastly, the great horned owl with the bad eye has been moved outside with the other two; when I walked by their compound, this young owl walked up threateningly, I believe to show he was protecting the place.
