The Cliffs

Tom visits the sheep pen to see which direction the freshest and most numerous tracks lead in his quest to find out what has happened to Thelma. A Sparrow Hawk circles for a meal to pick off the many sparrows that have gathered at the pen for spilled over food. Tom follows tracks to the side of the river, thru the tamarisk and along the cliff ledges above the river. It's a very narrow trail where Tom frequently has to crawl or slide over from one ledge to the next. The sheep have been sleeping here most recently but there is no sign of Thelma.

So sad. Keep us posted. Looks like you might have to hand fed that baby with a warm bottle.
