Fall Warbler Migration

Yesterday migration seemed to be winding down. This is a sampling for Brad Gulstad who was here yesterday, one day late or early. 😥 

This afternoon we caught another wave. A number of times there was a mixed bunch in the stream, but I am simply not skilled enough to get that much depth of field in focus.

Ron Cooper Mixte

My next project is a bicycle that I am actually going to ride, a 58cm mixte. When I bought the bike it was green with flaking Ron Cooper decals which I scratched off with my Capital One credit card.

The baskets are a custom set leftover from when I was brokering baskets made by the Hershberger family to Velo Orange. The frame paint color picks up the color of the straps and the walnut center strip of the wood fenders which were made by Cody Davis of Woody's Fenders.
Jeff Bock added pump brackets under the diagonals and threaded fittings to accept a bottle cage. Just to neatened it up a little.

Right now it is hanging in Bock's shop waiting for the paint to harden a little more before I build it up. - Gunnar
