    ‘Bird cages’ lift tower to new height - TheNewsTribune, WA
    Ironworkers, carpenters, laborers and concrete gunners have been working on the towers since August, weaving heavy webs of reinforcing steel and then pouring concrete in 17-foot sections. For the most part, the work has gone on 16 hours per day, six days per week. Crews toil inside structures they call "bird cages" - the large white boxes atop each tower leg.

    It has been a monumental effort, with each of the four legs requiring more than 4,000 cubic yards of concrete and 1.25 million pounds of reinforced steel.
