Lessons from the Birds

Jeannie Yandel

Birdwatchers consider the Union Bay Natural Area one of the best birdwatching sites in Seattle. But for more than 40 years, the place was a garbage dump. Now, the former landfill now has ponds, meadows and woodland areas that attract over 250 species of birds. People used to call the area Garbage Bay and birders mostly call it the Montlake Fill. Writer Connie Sidles has been coming to the Fill almost every morning for 20 years. KUOW's Jeannie Yandel walked around the Fill with Connie to find out what she's learned about life from the wildlife there.
