It looks like the State agency responsible for the banners attempted to respond to Tweeters, but it would appear their response didn’t come through. In any case, their response is as follows:

Subject: Your feedback on the pilot banner project / goldfinch banner



All: Thank you so much for getting this helpful feedback on our pilot banner project to us. It is a good reminder that artistic license can affect technical accuracy. We are removing the banners of concern and improving our draft approval processes. Thank you again – we very much appreciate your assistance.

If anyone wants to let the state government know about this, the responsible agency is the Washington Department of Enterprise Services. https://des.wa.gov/

Hi, Tweets



I agree with George - it's a willow goldfinch (American goldfinch) - I've written articles on this neat little bird and like it like it is. Given my choice, I may have opted for the American crow!



Cheers, Diann
