Official Birds

When I look out my window onto the city skyline, this is what I see. There was a time quite a number of years ago, when I first arrived in this town, that we experienced phenomenal growth. There was building going on everywhere! As it always happens, there followed a crash of sorts, and all construction came to a stand-still. It’s all changed now – with the price of crude oil hitting record highs, we are in another one of those booms. It won’t last. But for now, this is my view of the unofficial birds of the city, the crane. How many can you see?

My mom loved to watch the cranes working over the Liberty ships on Swan Island in Portland OR. She called them her birds.

I found five.
