No luck catching them rheas then? :)
No it seems not, DLL :) I think birds that expect to fly but find they can't are a lot easier to catch than ones that know they can't, so don't.

@Mashka: That story warmed my heart to near-bursting, Sirius. Thank you :) What a horrible start in life she had though :(

@Dr Who Fan: I don't suppose there's any news on the raccoon...? I'd almost given up thinking I'd find out what happened with the beluga whale that strayed up the Thames last year, but just did a quick search, and he's still hanging about apparently, or was mid-December anyway.

Apparently it is an occurrence known as a "Rainbow Bridge" (among other scientific names)

Okay, but it reminds me of a rocket launch from Vandenberg AFB to a polar orbit.

And it might be a rocket launch.

It is not. Image taken from an article that explained it that is beyond my ability to repeat let alone understand.

Beg to differ. At least on how the ice crystals came to be at that altitude in the sky to have the light strike them at the correct angle.

We don't have a lot of homeless people in my small town of Gatesville, Texas, but we do have some. Someone has started a small "soup kitchen" to feed the few homeless people we do have. I'm not going to put pressure on anyone to donate, but it would be nice if you could. I can vouch that this is real. It's not a scam. Thank you.

I'll continue to limp on, I'm not homeless, not yet at least, and not cause of My actions if I can help it.

Not quite what I expected.
It may however explain a few car thefts that the police haven't been able to resolve.
