WEST SEATTLE BIRDS: From bay to branches

Thanks to everyone who’s sent photos enabling us to publish another Sunday bird gallery! Above, Stewart L. spotted a flotilla of waterfowl in Elliott Bay. Below, Tom Tulin caught a lone duck ready to take the plunge at Lincoln Park:

    These are all so lovely. They’re so soothing at a time when we’re all so depressed and frazzled.
