Todd Thornton and I got rained out yesterday after a brief
stop at Bucky Barnett's feeder for ANNA'S HUMMINGBIRD.

Today was much more pleasant. I did my regular sparrow
search at the Airport mitigation bank and King Avenue.
The best bird was a PALM WARBLER at King Avenue. I assume
this is one of the birds seen by Todd and by Lee Cain in
December, but managed to elude me in spite of regular
visits. I also found 2 ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS and a
WHITE-THROATED SPARROW at King Av.

Astoria, OR that all through history
celata at pacifier.com the way of truth and love have always won.
There have been tyrants, and murderers,
and for a time they can seem invincible,
but in the end they always fall.
Think of it...always.
