I come from a generation where nobody calls each other. Texts are the preferred way to communicate which makes it especially odd (or suspicious) to receive a phone call.

Judi is an animal lover and spends her time volunteering with the Avian Wildlife Center. She was calling, frustrated, to let me know that a young bald eagle was in her care, sick with lead poisoning, and things didn’t look good. This made me ask myself what I could do to help conservation efforts while still in the field.
