Downtown's Newest Urbanites

A co-worker here at the Index directed me to one of our office windows and pointed to the roof of a parking garage . . .



At first glance, not much to see. But then I zeroed in on this . . .



A nest, mama seagull and three little ones . . .



A warm welcome to downtown Tacoma's newest residents.

Jeez- you had me going Todd! Well, I guess we have to start somewhere... we'll need to train them how to ride the LINK and to go shopping like good urbanites do.

What about chick #3?!

1 in 3 sea gull chicks don't make it.

You decide The Official Bird of the City of Tacoma:



OR...

My cat says that seagulls are just flying rats in bird suits.

He said he would love to add any one of your feathered friends featured here to his vast collection of ornitholites... (yum-yum tasty)

The stowe family once watched a sea gull kill and eat a pigeon at frost park.

Ya. And the remains of the pigeon were coincidentally right near where Elliott chalked his nest of chicks last week.

I vote for Murray Morgan's peregrine falken

Dave L,

My cat is a student of fine art and wants to know if Elliot's chalk piece would be considered 3D or performance art?

He also asked if there are any leftovers?

Cute!

So long as they don't crap on my car, then they will become white-pooping winged rats!
