The red-breasted merganser photographed by Mark Wangerin just might be suggesting you not duck your civic responsibilities – there’s a LOT going on today/tonight, mostly community meetings, plus music and sports. From the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

WEST SEATTLE TRANSPORTATION PROBLEMS/SOLUTIONS: For months, the West Seattle Transportation Coalition has been working toward this meeting with reps from multiple levels of government that deal with transportation in our area, to pose serious questions and get real answers about the plan (or perhaps the lack of one) for our area’s transportation troubles. 6:30 pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center.
