I was shocked into major swerving and traffic dodging while cycling near
the Ballard Bridge yesterday evening. A circling display flight, loud
calls, two medium sized birds with long tapered tails, what could they
be? Some wierd dove, cuckoo, ani, raptor...? Nope, a pair of
cockatiels. I caught up to them at Leary way and about 17th NW. Just
another urban birding day...
