Besides wine

Yesterday, Gerich found this little one laying in the sun on the winery crush pad. He quickly moved it into the shade. We got out a basket, a towel, a vial which we filled with water, and gave the little "Rocky" (Gerich named 'him') a few drops of water into his open beak. Silverado Vet Clinic, about a 30 mile drive from the winery, is affiliated with Napa Wildlife Rescue. We rushed Rocky down hoping he could be saved. The vet office took him in, called the Rescue, and we received a call today saying he'd be taken care of until he was well enough to be released. Is this more gratifying than, say, making wine? You bet.
