EVENT: Around 10:30 AM on a cool but sunny morning, December 16, made a drawing & watercolor of the landscape in each cardinal direction as seen from the center of the site. Here, the view is to the northwest across the Parade Street overpass with a final white train car heading east. Beyond trees the towers of the historic Saint Stanislaus Catholic Church can be seen. Located on East 13th and Wallace, St. Stan’s was built in 1884 for and by Polish immigrants to Erie. (Photo by Stephen Gleason.)
EVENT: Around 12:30 PM on another rainy overcast day, December 8, Steve Sonnenberg watched for birds, saw only three pigeons at a distance, but located two nests hidden in overgrowth near the railroad tracks. Bits of plastic bags and packing foam were woven amongst the natural nesting materials.
