Here are two stories about birds.

Wisdom the Albatross has returned to Midway. Apparently this is the oldest wild bird we know about. And she's still laying eggs, putting many a chicken to shame. I wish albatrosses a long life, and many happy eggs.

Odin the Eagle has fled. In this bittersweet tale, a golden eagle made a bid for freedom whilst holidaying with his owner in Scotland. The owner has not given up hope of getting him back, but remains realistic: "If he has not had too much food he would come down to me, but if he's full of food he would not bother."

It's awful to lose a cherished pet, of course, but one part of me can't help saying "Fly, Odin, fly!" and hoping he manages out there in the wild.
