Random Photo of the Day

There is always a lot of tugboat traffic down on the Willamette. Sometimes we forget that the city began here to use that river as a highway and that it's still very much in use. Most of the time, the tugs I see are pushing big or even huge barges. Today, it looks more like someone has decided to move the house.

We're Bushtits!!!

Posted by Picasa
On New Year's Eve, I bought two bird feeders from the nice people at the Back Yard Bird Shop on Fremont. I hung the seed and suet feeders on my balcony and waited a long time for any visitors. Now I'm getting two varieties of chickadee, a few sparrows, the occasional nuthatch and a cheery swarm of bushtits. It would be nice if I could get better lighting, but a few of these photos aren't terrible. Updated with more photos, including a nuthatch!
