Continuing the death count, the robin who was doing so well at the last update suddenly developed severe respiratory problems, which the antibiotics he was on should have prevented but did not. He checked out. All three of the rabbits rescued from the lawn mower died.
But wait, there IS good news! The mallard was successfully released on a well-monitored pond (thanks to Chris and Shelley Baumann for the release site!) and we discovered, to our delight, that she was capable of limited flight—enough to escape predators if the need arose.
