OUTDOORS UPDATE:

HANDS OFF.  The NDG&F Dept. reminds the public that contact with baby animals can occur this time of year.  While cute, or apparently helpless, the department notes they should be left alone and untouched, for their best chance at survival.

DOWNTURN.  It may be a washout weekend with a big shift coming tomorrow night in our weather pattern.  A low pressure system sets up shop to the south and pumps moisture in starting Friday running through Sunday.

TICKLED PINK.  A fun story from the FWS covering a transplanted pink flamingo will add some color to your day.  It’s likely the wild bird was brought to Florida on the winds of a hurricane last year.
