Yellow-throated vireo at Millennium Park in West Roxbury

Mary Ellen spotted this yellow-throated vireo at Millennium Park in West Roxbury the other day, reports they're not a common visitor there - possibly because they prefer they tend to prefer bug foraging in the canopies of large forests.

Chair in Millennium Park at the Charles River

Somebody brought a chair down to the banks of the Charles River in Millennium Park in West Roxbury and then left it there.

I used it this afternoon to watch a great blue heron on the Dedham side of the river - wanted to be ready should it just stop standing there and fly. It finally did - all of 20 feet upriver, where it then proceeded to just stand there again. Read more.

Scraping the bottom of the Public Garden Lagoon

Damaskin watched workers remove the gunk at the bottom of the drained Public Garden Lagoon today. When done, they'll refill the small pond with clean water that will hopefully end the threat of mass duck die-offs caused by botulism toxin in the water that had been caused, indirectly, by Covid-19 - by forcing the cancellation of the Swan Boats and their paddles, which normally would oxygenate the water, which inhibits the bacteria.
