    This beautiful bird is taking a stand against pollution of its sacred hunting grounds.Birdie is seekiing our help to remove this major eyesore from its hunting grounds.Will you help? Will you do something to help save the river environment from the oils that may leaked from this monster into the water? Are we going to save the environment for future generations? Birdie is not resting.He/she is protesting silently but relentlessly.

      REST is to cease activity, taking a break, usually the person is awake through that time.

      While to SLEEP is; eyes closed and not conscious of goings on around you this can last a few moments to many hours. During this time body, mind and energy are rejuvenated through this version of relaxation.
