    Makes me sick to my stomach when I think of all the WEED AND FEED AND ALL THAT OTHER S–T (Scott’s Monsanto/Home depot) that gets applied to lawns every day in this city/country/world.Seattle….are you GREEN?   Then boycott ALL companies  and products that irritate and kill these sweet little birds along with what end up in Puget Sound.  This sweet little bird…

    I was walking by Easy Street a bit ago and saw/heard a band setting up but I can’t find anything online. Does anyone know if there was an instore tonight and who was playing?

      Maybe a private event? I just rechecked their most-recent marketing email, which sometimes has last-minute adds, but the next thing it was promoting is the Duff McKagan performance on Tuesday.

    Yes, yes, yes to what Scott said. There’s no excuse for using toxic Roundup and other crap. Also, let’s protect those adorable baby birds by keeping our dogs on leashes and — (is this asking the impossible?) — keeping kitties indoors. Every year in the U.S., cats kill more than 2 billion birds. I think any decent, responsible cat owner would be horrified if their pet brought home a dead baby bird like that little robin. Not the cat’s fault.Plus, indoor cats are healthier cats.

      Agree whole heartedly about the kitties! I have 2 and they never go outside.

Sorry, comment time is over.
