Tri-State Bird Rescue
Thank you for the article (“Tending Their Flock,” November) on Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research. I’ve lived in Delaware all my life and I just discovered this wonderful resource last month when I took an injured chipping sparrow to Tri-State’s wonderful facility. The staff was amazing and friendly and the grounds are beautiful.
They took the time to show me where healthy birds are released back into the wild and even sent me an update about the chipping sparrow. They do wonderful, meaningful and important work and it is so great to have them as a resource in Delaware.
I hope more people discover them as a result of the great feature in your magazine.
Mind Your Manors
This note refers to the feature about the MacMillan home in Odessa, written by Eileen Dallabrida in your October issue. On page 48, your copy editor inserted the following subhead: TO THE MANOR BORN. This is an Americanized and incorrect version of an old English phrase. The correct English phrase or saying is: TO THE MANNER BORN.
As the grandmother of a child with Down syndrome, I was disappointed to read that Dr. Louis Bartoshesky said, “no one can look at a Down syndrome child (and do anything about the chromosome that causes it).” My grandson is a child who has Down syndrome. There is a difference!
