HOW to understand the Homeless: The peregrine, home invasion and isolationists

Updated on March 14, 2013

We respect and do not violate the home of the Peregrine. Because we care for their well being

I saw him land, but did not go closer, because that would be and invasion.

If a Peregrine Falcon is spotted in the inland southwest America, we use "closure" for the area.

Peregrines and Climbers like the same sheer cliff walls. When we spot them in a new area, we close it to the climbers not the falcons. We protect the environs of the once endangered birds.

A Peregrine nest is on that cliff in the picture to the right. No I cannot see it either. But I tracked the Peregrine and saw it land. I am not such a hot climber but if I were I would not invade that habitat. It is just wrong to do.

Homeless nests and disorganization

The photos next are of a homeless hermit shelter. The idea is as the Peregrine, camouflage. If I went closer -- about 70 feet down a steep canyon bank-- I could get you a closer picture. But as you learn I could not take a picture out of respect for privacy.

The man who lives there is a hermit/isolationist. He is also disorganized to a degree of disorder. And of course he is paranoid. His name is Jack. Jack does not like visitors. Jack did not attack me on this visit as I caught him in a mellow mood. Thank goodness he is organized enough to take his meds 3/4 of the time. Jack is plenty pissed. though.

Jack's home was invaded. They did not call out, they did not whistle and they never asked permission to enter, it was a warrantless search and seizure. It was the VA investigating residency for benefits. Jack is a desert storm Vet.


That down there is a home What right do we have to invade it?

Does the right to privacy only extend to Peregrines and 200 thousand dollar homes?

Someone determined that the species of plants here are more important than Jack's home.

I bet they know about the species from a book, and for sure they never met Jack.

Society protects the bird, but does not care about Jack

I will bet that Jack has watched and appreciated the Peregrines more than anyone in the government that either wants his extinction or does not even know he exists.

      MrsBrownsParlour, Thank you for appreciating my passion. Hypocrisy is such a negative word, but I find that in examining our hypocrisy we can better evaluate our true values.

      MsDora, thank you. It is time to get my son a puppy. From the dog he can sharpen his empathy skills and begin to learn to care for others. Just a question for you: What did your parents do to make you so caring?

      Nice contrast of examples with personal storytelling to illustrate the importance of respecting all beings. :-)

      Wonderful concept, I will suggest to him that he take that position on for himself. He may not get out and meet people for himself but perhaps he would for his canyon.

      I've witnessed the concern for animals over people. Thanks for people like you who to take the time to notice and make a difference. We learn so much from you.

      Best wishes to Jack. Instead of persecuting him, they should recruit him as a warden. He would keep trespassers away. The jobsworths in government can be very stupid sometimes.

      I dreamt, that a falcon pecked at my door and asked the right to enter. When I answered; it was me in a homeless state of being. And I was the falcon in my nest. I let the homeless in.
