Brett Stevenson was kind enough to share what he called a “weird” photograph.
“This was a tree between a Wells Fargo Bank and a Jack in the Box at 164th Street SW and 13th Avenue W. in Lynnwood, near my office,” Stevenson says. “I was driving, looked up, and saw a tree full of crows with one large bald eagle sitting next to them.”
He says it was strange to see them clustered in a retail area.
“I had to shoot it with my camera phone through the windshield. When I got out, the eagle flew away.”

Ida Dalton in Lake Stevens is looking for a helpful stranger.
She wants to say “Thank you.”
And give him $10.
Livia Dalton, Ida Dalton’s daughter, says her mother was on her way to work when she realized she needed gas and decided to go into downtown Everett instead of taking I-5.
She landed at a gas station Jan. 18 on Hewitt Avenue, by Buck’s American Cafe.
She left her wallet and cell phone at home.
She asked the attendant is she could borrow the station telephone, dialed, but her daughter wasn’t at home.
“This is when a young man came in and overheard what my mom was telling the attendant,” Livia Dalton says. “He left and seconds later came back with a $20 bill to give to my mom to pay for her gas.”
Ida Dalton and the attendant were amazed, and thanked the stranger. He went back to his car to fill his tank.
“My mom felt she couldn’t use all the money so she gave back $10, he refused, but she insisted and he eventually took it back. She was unable to get his name, he drove off before she could.”
She’d would like to return the $10.
If you know this nice young man, call 425-339-3451.

“It’s Easy being Green”: GroundFrog Day 2010 is planned for Saturday in Snohomish. A Northwest Frognostication Ceremony begins at 10:30 a.m. at Ferguson Park, 1330 Ferguson Park Road.
A dedication of a park bench is planned to honor the founder of GroundFrog Day, Daryl Bertholet, who died in July.
Pam Osborne, manager of the Snohomish Chamber of Commerce, says Bertholet was always thinking of unique ways of promoting Snohomish.
“As the director of the Snohomish Community Food Bank at the time of his passing, he had initiated a program of community organizations growing produce that went to the food bank,” Osborne says. “The program was a huge success. His goal was to get the food bank as close to completely self-sufficient as possible.”
