Birds? Ok, maybe. But the people I know in Portland put fish on things. Maybe because we fish, or we like rivers, or we can't help it because salmon still swim through our city, up the Willamette, up Johnson Creek and that is very cool. Trout are cool too, wild trout. But wild salmon are cooler (don't even mention farmed salmon). And wild steelhead are the coolest. According to my husband, the former fishing guide.
A's first word was fish (with seriously no coaching/prompting from us. He just pointed to this driftwood art and said "shish.")
We have fish on a lot of things.
But oh, I guess we do have birds, too.
