The bird is (as of this post: present tense) named Francis. After assessing its problems (a broken wing??), we decided to take it to a wildlife rehabilitation center in San Mateo. Thanks, Peninsula Humane Society! Please take care of Francis!

After dinner, we receive knife training! We are all out finding sticks to make pointy.

That's all for now! Tuckered out tinkerers have beach day to look forward to tomorrow!
