Week three guests had a bit of excitement later in the week after the wedding when a guest sprained her ankle while hiking. Paramedics do come when you call. She went to Fresno for x-rays and will be fine.

Week 2 guests had some added excitement. George Harper described it on his blog:
". . .one of the Lakeview Cottages guests was out fishing in one of our newly "repowered" boats when he rescued one of our osprey. The bird became tangled up and injured when it caught a fish with fishing line attached. The fisherman covered the panicked bird with his jacket to calm it. The bird shredded his jacket with its sharp talons. He managed to calm the bird and get it into the boat with him. When he got back to the Cottages a group of interested guests helped cut the fishing line off the bird and to place the bird in one of the life vest storage lockers.

While other concerned osprey circled overhead crying out to their wounded kin, Mark placed four insistent calls to the Forest Service until he got connected to a "live person" to whom he could report the injured bird. Someone would be there soon, he was assured.

An hour and a half later, not one, not two, three or four, but five people showed up to take custody of the bird with the intention of nurturing it back to health for future release back to the wild. According to Mark, they were part of a non-profit group called "Raptor Rescue." I googled Raptor Rescue and was astonished at the number of organizations dedicated to the rescue of wounded or troubled wildlife."

Osprey update The bird was taken by the Forest Service to Fresno Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Service. They transferred the bird to the osprey experts at International Bird Rescue and Research Center near Fairfield. They sent the bird to the Davis Raptor Center who after only 24 hours or less took it back up to where it was found. They said the bird appeared healthy and would not do well in captivity, even for a short period. The osprey clan is active. Come and see them.
