March 3, 2020 — The Santo Antônio Dam reservoir, 6 km southwest of Porto Velho, Brazil:


Shorter days, falling temperatures, dwindling food supply.  Genetic instincts, mysterious alignment of the stars, the Great Spirit’s plan.

Harriett longs for home. The urge to breed, to see her nest. To see the Doctor.  To go home! Home………  She is prepared. Has gained one third of her body weigh to use for energy. The flight is 4612 miles, she will need it all.


About Harriett Raptor

Eight-year-old mother of five, fluent in telepathy, a possessor of genetic memory, a genius and scholar. Harriett holds the equivalent of a PhD in philosophy, biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, and the Homo sapiens’ concept of the humanities. Her understanding of mathematics and logic are beyond Homo sapiens’ current comprehension. Harriett is a thinker, a wise osprey, especially distinguished for her expertise in the Homo sapiens problem.

    Hurry home Harriett! Several of your friends near me have returned home to find that bald eagles have usurped their nests. There have been quite a few spectacular aerial battles over ownership.
