As I headed out the door, there were patchy clouds with blue holes. As I drove towards Magnuson Park, raindrops fell on the windshield. By the time we arrived ten minutes later, the rain stopped.
I heard a knocking sound and tracked it down to a tree where a Downy Woodpecker was hacking away:
Out on the lake, there were still a few wintering birds about, like this Common Goldeneye:
We walked for about half an hour, and did not get rained on.
It was quite birdy. Here is a Bewick's Wren:

Here is Truman by the submarine fin sculpture:
On our way back to the car, I spotted this Cooper's Hawk:
I decided to drive around through the old naval base buildings, looking for something to sketch. It started to sprinkle again, and I was happy to find a parking spot directly across from this nice building:
We drove home in the rain. A few minutes after we got home, the sun came out again. For the rest of the day, Truman and I ran out back to sit on the lawn chairs during the sun breaks, and ran back inside during the showers. What larks!
