Art D. dropping the knowledge: “Starlings. It’s called a “murmuration”. They do this to get food and/or evade predators.”
Spotted in a Petworth alley — I’m assuming this is an ADU, but the architecture seem kinda wonky. New as of a few (3?) weeks ago…Wondering if any readers have any light to shed (no pun intended) on this structure.”

The exercise includes F-16, UC-35A, MH-65D and a Cessna 182T aircraft. Some portions of the exercise could involve flights at approximately 2,500′“

Well this is insane. Thanks to Bill for sharing: “My kids – and so many others – walk this sidewalk every day. Please fix this ASAP! Wood piece is on top of it. Which I put back on top … not sure why 311 – DPW or DC Water wasn’t out immediately today to fix this!”
Fortunately DC311 replied this morning: Read More
