LaLa yesterday - and today? .......UPDATE!

Here's a nice photo of LaLa, taken yesterday by Stan Furtak. As you can see she seemed to be doing fine, and I am told she was busy visiting feeders and flowers, fluffing up her feathers, and even catching insects.

I will post information on LaLa's status as soon as I have it.
