After running on pavement last Saturday, followed by a shorter run yesterday on the Burke Gilman trail, my feet were begging for some time on the trail. I didn't have time to make it over to Cougar this morning but decided to make it a late morning to work, and go to Discovery Park - the next best thing. When I got there mine was the ONLY car in the south parking lot. It was 7 am - wasn't anyone awake?? I only saw a few people on the trail, and the beach was pretty deserted. What I did see was this bird; for you non-birders (like me) that's an American goldfinch. He flew down to greet me as I ran along the north beach trail, so I had to stop and gawk for a while. Nice to see summer is on its way!
