Outta here!

I was pleasantly surprised Thursday afternoon to find these two osprey perched on a power pole near the NW Career & Technical Center in downtown Anacortes. I watched for 10 minutes or so as one bird dined on a fish while the other watched in anticipation. Apparently the wait was too long, because at one point the osprey “in wait” issued a squawk and flew off. So much for sharing…

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.
