What’s happening on your West Seattle holiday Monday

Thanks to Trileigh Tucker for sharing the photos of Pacific Wrens she found near Pelly Place this weekend, “singing softly back and forth. They have a lovely mellifluous complex song; if you haven’t heard it, take a listen.” Perhaps a love song, she surmised. (And remember – you can now click most WSB photos to open a “lightbox” window with a much-bigger view.) Today would be a great day for bird-watching, park walks, other ways to enjoy nature … and here’s what else is up:

HIGH-SCHOOL BASKETBALL: We usually only feature home games but since it’s a holiday, you might be interested in going crosstown to cheer on the West Seattle High School varsity teams, playing as part of an MLK Day slate at Garfield High School – boys vs. Eastside Catholic at 1:30 pm, girls vs. Rainier Beach at 3 pm. (400 23rd Ave.)

SUSTAINABLE WEST SEATTLE: MLK Day has long been a Day of Service, and Sustainable West Seattle invites you to honor that intention by getting involved with the group – at any level that interests you, including leadership. Here’s more on tonight’s meeting, 7 pm (following a 6:30 pm meet-and-greet) at Admiral Bird. (California SW & SW Admiral Way)

QUIZ NIGHT: 7:30 pm at The Skylark, free and all ages – info in our calendar listing. (3803 Delridge Way SW)

TRIVIA NIGHT: 7:30 pm at Christo’s on Alki. (2508 Alki SW)

    I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to Trileigh Tucker for the wonderful photos she shares with us! That second wren picture is so perfect that I feel like I could reach out and touch the bird. Just lovely!

Sorry, comment time is over.
