Flamingos land in Jamaica Pond

Flamingos in Jamaica Pond

Sometime overnight, a flock of pink flamingos landed on the island at the Perkins Street end of Jamaica Pond. The pond's native geese and ducks gave them a wide berth.

    It's amazing how all pink flamingos stand in exactly the same position!

    I think this is cool, though I hope they have a return trip planned in the near future to remove them. What is cute and whimsical one day is trash the next.

    I'll volunteer to help clean up after they have lost their luster. In the meantime there are a lot of folks enjoying them. Not bad for local business either.

    Local business?

    What, exactly, is the local business to that island? The British School? If people like them, then fine but c'mon...

    Yarn bombers

    Exactly.

    Do the folks who do thinks like yarn bomb the Mass Ave bridge go back later and take their stuff down or does the DPW do that?

    Depends

    It all depends upon what arrangement the head of the Joining Project made with the State DOT, you know, since she got the OK from them to have the work installed there.

    Since permission was granted, I don't think people call them Yarn Bombs, it's now more of an art installation.

    They're scaring the bald eagle away. Not a smart move.
