We're Still Here!

In spite of the colder weather and lack of camouflaging foliage, there is still some wildlife in the area. These beautiful birds were flitting around the branches and preening as I watched. I couldn't get close enough to see what they are...any bird experts out there recognize them? This is the same lake as yesterday's shot, but taken from another angle. This one is looking west.

Hi Becky. Thanks for your comentssss! :) Nice shot. I'm not a bird expert to tell you what bird it is.

Yes, that street cars was functioning. There were some other tracks on that intersection for different routes of street car. They are going to expand the street car coverage all over the downtown. You may know that there is a farless square in portland that we can ride any kind of public transit for free to move around the downtown.

We can meet each other sometime if you travel to Portland. We can go and visit the OMSI one day if you like. Just drop me an email if you're interested.
