JB Parrett watched as a gaggle of goslings made their way along the Charles today.
A concerned citizen complains:
I don't want to be a wet blanket, but every evening when I walk through the Public Garden between 5 and 6, I see this gentleman feeding the geese and ducks, in spite of the fact that such feeding is not allowed - I would normally let it go, but he feeds them practically every night, and he feeds them...

Paul Schlichtman was among those who stopped to let the Jamaicaway procession finish today.
Jaeseung Hahn captured the scene in Cambridgeport yesterday morning, when the white geese of the Charles River went for a stroll.
On River Street outbound from Cleary Square, just before Turtle Pond Parkway, there's this Goose Crossing sign. This afternoon, what seemed like endless squadrons of geese took full advantage of the sign, crossing from the Neponset River to their ancestral grazing grounds on the large field across the street.
A group approached the road, waited until it was clear in both directions and then waddled... Read more
We spent a some time on the north side of Jamaica Pond today, watching the geese (and some ducks and one seagull) flocked around the one remaining patch of open water on the... Read more
Some geese were just hanging out this morning on the train track on the Cambridge side of the BU Bridge.
The Daily Item reports the 80-year-old duck feeder refuses to stop, no matter how large the bill, she says God is on her side.
Kathy reports there's a gaggle of geese under the BU bridge. By itself, no big deal, except the goslings are now big enough to notice that while some are obviously the spawn of the white adult geese that watch over them, some have the black legs of Canada geese:
... So it looks like maybe some Canada gooselings imprinted on domesticated parents. So what... Read more
State officials consider unleashing the hounds to scare geese away from the Esplanade. They'll love that across the river when all the geese resettle along Mem. Drive.
Cool photo of the sun going down over the Longfellow Bridge and a flock of geese.
Make it this one, about excessive droppings at the Brookline Reservoir.
Alyssa Boehm photographs Hoggy the Groundhog, who thinks her backyard garden is a take-out joint:
He's kind of cute, but he's also a bit destructive. I opted not to plant any tomatoes this year (one if his favorites to take a single bite from) and focus on my peppers. Undaunted, he's been burrowing around in my veggie patch.
And I think he's been snacking... Read more
Wave Maker spots an interesting goose formation in the evening sky.
Mike the Mad Biologist thinks so: A program to get geese out of Science Park only got them to move down to the Esplanade, which they now crap up, leading to crappy runoff into the river, feeding what has become an annual bloom of blue-green algae that is itself pretty gross:
... These algal blooms have been spotted in previous years up by Science... Read more
