Serena Williams has finally decided what she wants out of life: Everything

For a long time, it was impossible to tell what Serena Williams wanted. Did she want to be a café society girl? Did she want to be a clothing empress? Did she want a long career playing tennis, or was the game simply a means to a more glamorous and less work intensive gig? In her peripatetic middle years she dressed with more purpose than she played, seemed more interested in cunning little pleats than in competition. That’s over now. Williams knows what wants, and what she wants is all of it, a clean sweep of Melbourne, Paris, London and New York.

Grays Harbor Birds — House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus)

The House Finch is one of our most common feeder and yard birds, and can be seen almost anywhere in Grays Harbor. Unlike the other introduced/unwelcome outsiders (European Starlings and Eurasian Collared-Doves), this bird is quite popular with most who appreciate not only its red coloring (at least on the male) but also its long and cheerful song. This photo of a brightly colored male was taken by Mike Hamilton.
