    Getting onto the ballot is as easy as writing a $1200 check, and all of my fellow District 1 candidates are choosing that path. I am choosing another way. I am getting onto the Seattle City Council ballot by gathering signatures of registered D1 voters.
    Look for me in my Vote for Amanda T-shirt. I will be up in the Junction today! In front of Key Bank 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
    You Must be registered in West Seattle or South Park to sign for me when you see me. Or if you can’t make it, you can print out a petition, get West Seattle/South Park registered voters to sign and mail it to:

    Thank you West Seattle!

    Beautiful photo, but not of a goldfinch. Looks like a Yelliw-dumped Warbler.

  • RT May 3, 2015 (9:42 am)

    That looks more like a warbler than a goldfinch. :-)

  • Trileigh May 3, 2015 (10:00 am)

    Lovely photo, but that’s not a goldfinch. Looks like a Yellow-rumped Warbler to me. They’re in increasing abundance this time of year. Gorgeous little birds!

  • Joan May 3, 2015 (10:11 am)

    Whoa, so not a goldfinch! I believe it’s a Yellow-Rumped Warbler.

    • WSB May 3, 2015 (10:39 am)

      Sorry, “goldfinch” was how it was ID’d when sent to us and the photographers are the bird experts – I looked at the BirdWeb page before linking but the bird was shown with many looks that seemed to me as if they could match. However, I’ve taken off the bird name altogether since it’s been challenged by more than a few; apologies.

  • Just me May 3, 2015 (11:44 am)

    Obviously, it’s a Yellow Rumped Goldfinch.

  • WestSide45 May 3, 2015 (8:15 pm)

    It’s a Myrtle Warbler, one of the two races of Yellow-rumped Warbler in WA. No yellow on the throat distinguishes the Myrtle from the Audubon’s Warbler from the underside.

Sorry, comment time is over.
