Caring for an injured bird -- a thankless job

When you live in an A-frame, or, ‘IHOP,’ as we like to call it (sans the orange roof), the one rather sad part is that birds tend to fly into the upper windows. Even hanging medallions hasn’t seemed to help and it is not uncommon for us to be casually eating lunch or watching the news when something with the audible force of a softball, hits above your head and makes you jump six feet out of your chair and waste a rather nice pinot noir as it plops onto your lap.

Local agencies respond to a kite boarder in distress Friday afternoon

Horry County Police and other agencies search for a kite boarder in distress between the Myrtle Beach State Park pier and the remains of the Springmaid Pier on Friday, June 23, 2017. Around 4 p.m. the Myrtle Beach Fire Department called off the search, but the U.S.Coast Guard said the investigation is ongoing. Murrells Inlet resident Marcus Poe said he saw a kite boarder dressed in black rise up from the ocean about 150 feet, drop suddenly and then never reappear. Poe said he called the authorities to report the incident.I guess its a recovery effort now. I hope they can at least find a body,he said.
