West Seattle scene: Flamingo flock @ Alki Mail and Dispatch

Increasing bird sightings are yet another sign of impending spring … This morning, in fact, we heard robins and Steller’s jays pre-dawn, and then we saw … pink flamingos. Thanks to the WSB’er who tipped us to the flamingo flock outside Alki Mail and Dispatch; when we went over for a photo, Alki Mail staff pointed us to the flyer saying the flock was placed by the Admiral Congregational Church youth group, who were in the flamingo-flocking-fundraiser business last year (WSB coverage here) and apparently are at it again (here’s the page on the church website).

    What a great idea for fundraising! I loved seeing the flamingos this morning when I drove past Alki Mail & Dispatch!

    We LOVED the getting “flocked” by the Admiral Congregational Youth Group! (…and we’d love to find out who was behind it) It was quite the coversational piece all day with clients and friends calling in. Thanks for a bit o’ pinkness on this beautiful dynamic weather day!

    The flock of flamingos made my day! TR, I saw you guys taking pictures this morning… I almost yelled “WSB! HI!” but didn’t want to creep you out.
