Blending in

Published August 7, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

I followed this hummingbird’s flight path into a decorative cherry tree below the deck. If I hadn’t seen him land, I likely wouldn’t have seen him at all, perched “green on green” on the foliage. Sparkly “camo.” I then sat under the shade of this tree for about 15 minutes waiting for a hummingbird to feed on a colorful bush a few feet away.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
