Most of us live in cities and don’t see a creek in our day-to-day lives. Seattle was plumbed in 1903 and though there has been some laudable daylighting, most of the water is piped to Westpoint to create all kinds of problems when the Water Dept. tries to comply with federal clean water standards.

The absence of creeks is harshest in the cities. Urban architects seem to know this so the downtown is sprinkled with sterile water features that are devoid of everything that makes a creek beautiful, things like pools, riffles and little waterfalls, things like plants and moss and ferns–and Birds.

Living next to a creek has made Delia and me understand how important moving water is to Birds. We constantly see birds get done with a bath and hop out of the creek as if to go on with the business of their day. But they don’t, they jump back in the creek and have another session, and then maybe a few more after that.

Backyard Creeks are easy to build and not terribly expensive.
