Source of the song

Published June 11, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

One of the wonderful elements of this season is the music of the red breasted robin. I know this is not THE robin whose song I wake up to at my home, as he/she was perched in a madrona tree near the Depot in downtown Anacortes. But it was the morning music that is common to this familiar feathered friend no matter the location. Sing on!

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.
