A short ramble through Elysian Park this morning, and Chicken Corner counted yellow rumped warblers, California bluebirds, an unidentified, tiny bird that was not the short tailed wren that's common around here, and towhees, not to mention the usual suspects: hawks, crows, mourning doves, mocking birds, and finches of several varieties. My dog, Chyla, and I sat in the shade on one of the short-cut trails, and watched as the birds danced around and tweeted -- a party in the sun. Some are year-rounders, others on their way north. They are all very interested in what happens at Dodger Stadium now that ownership is changing hands.

Doggy and I returned home to find that Scott Fajack had posted this very relevant photo on the Citizens Committee to Save Elysian Park's Facebook page. It shows a 1965 peck-it picket.
