Many of the scientists at the CDC headquarters in Atlanta are on furlough. Many of the scientists at the CDC headquarters in Atlanta are on furlough.

   WASHINGTON (AP) - Because of the partial shutdown, government's work is piling up everywhere. It's not just paperwork.

   Litter lingers on sandbars along a stretch of the Missouri River in Nebraska because a volunteer clean-up was canceled when the government docked its boats. The Centers for Disease control has a backlog of food poisoning microbes that can't be checked because so many scientists are furloughed.

   And one woman is keeping a bald eagle in her freezer.  Wendi Pencille tends to injured birds in her upstate New York home. When a bald eagle dies, she sends the remains to a special eagle repository near Denver that ships feathers to Indian tribes for sacred ceremonies.

   But the federal bird shippers are furloughed while much of the government, like her fallen eagle, is on ice.
