Going, Going...almost Gone

In about 3 1/2 months the Navy Annex has gone from:


What you're seeing there is the last segment of building remaining. Hard believe that in a little while the Navy Annex will be just a memory.

Here's a wider angle shot of the scene:

In other exciting (for me) neighborhood news, I heard and saw a new species of bird. The photos I was able to capture of it are pretty poor, but it was all black with exquisite red and yellow stripes on its wings:

When I got back to my house I used Google Image search to trivially find out its name. It's a Red Winged Black Bird and they are "one of the most abundant birds across North America." In other words, I'm basically oblivious to my surroundings for not having noticed it sooner. Still, I'll take whatever little pleasures I can get.
