West Seattle Wednesday: From off-ramps to owling

Those owls were photographed this week in Fauntleroy Park, according to Flickr member Inohuri, who shared images via the West Seattle Blog group pool. An owling walk through another local park is one of the highlights for today/tonight from the WSB West Seattle Events Calendar, but we begin with a road reminder:

OFF-RAMP REMINDER FOR EASTBOUND SPOKANE STREET VIADUCT: In case you’ve missed (or forgotten) the previous reminders, including this one from last night, today’s the day … That also means northbound bus reroutes in SODO (the advisory’s linked from our preview story, too).

BARTON PUMP STATION PRE-CONSTRUCTION MEETING: Major work is about to begin on the project to expand the capacity of the King County Wastewater Treatment Division’s pump station just north of the Fauntleroy ferry dock. Tonight, as previewed again earlier this morning, the county promises to discuss timelines, effects, and other updated details at a community meeting, 6;30 pm, Fauntleroy Church (9140 California SW).

DENNY/SEALTH JAZZ CONCERT: The first of three Wednesday night student concerts by Chief Sealth International High School and Denny International Middle School musicians in the Sealth auditorium (2600 SW Thistle) is tonight, 7 pm, featuring the schools’ jazz groups.

OWLING IN SCHMITZ PARK: Naturalist Stewart Wechsler plans a walk through Schmitz Park tonight to seek out, and talk about, its owls. 8 pm; more details on his website.

COMEDY QUARTET, THREE-FOURTHS FROM WEST SEATTLE: Mona Concepcion, Cait Parks, and Jeffrey Robert are West Seattleites and also happen to be 3 of the 4 G’s comedy group performing tonight at Wing It in the U-District. They’re hoping friendly faces from the peninsula will be in the crowd. 8 pm; details and ticket link here.

    Barred Owl populations are skyrocketing, which may not be such good news for the more docile Spotted Owl and other owls. Used to be only an Eastern U.S. owl, but they’ve migrated in the past decades.

    (But nice pictures, anyway.)

    With all the depressing news today, this picture made me feel good. It’s great to see wildlife whenever I work in the park. It’s one of the reasons I volunteer working there.

Sorry, comment time is over.
