Shortly before 5 p.m., as Katrina Demulling shows us, service halted on the C inbound due to a pair of turkeys that refused to yield the tracks to a trolley.
"This is not how I remember 'Make Way for Ducklings'," Gedalia Pasternak thought while watching a bus on Mass. Ave in Harvard Square making way for passing poultry this morning.

Jen Richard videoed this in Fort Point Channel by the Tea Party Museum this morning. The New England Aquarium confirms it was a harbor porpoise.
Esplanade dock gets fat, sassy visitor.
John Pelletier shows us his backyard in Newton this morning.
A grossed out Roslindale citizen asks the city to remove the dead skunk in the backyard.
Bad news: The city replies it doesn't remove dead animals from private property.
Sort of good news: If the homeowner can stomach the idea and somehow get the carcass to the street, "then we would pick it up."
Remember when hawks were a rare things in the city? A roving UHub photographer spotted this seemingly put out hawk on the O'Callaghan Way side of the Mary Ellen McCormack project in South Boston today.
Todd Consentino was bicycling down Memorial Drive in Cambridge today when he noticed a squirrel hiding from a hawk thanks to some conveniently placed bleachers.
John Gage captured a bluejay (don't worry - just with his camera) on the Common today.
Dan the roving UHub photographer spotted this guy perched on a street light on Westover Street in West Roxbury this afternoon.
Rob C spotted these turkeys patiently waiting for the bus in the South End this morning.
It's not quite dogs and cats laying together, but a disgruntled South Boston citizen has had quite enough of fornicating raccoons on East 7 Street:
Raccoons mating. Need to be removed! Saw them last night on my deck and this morning they are abusing my neighbors pool.

This hawk warily eyed a photographer from a perch way above the canoe-launch parking lot at Millennium Park in West Roxbury this morning.
With temps in the 50s today, tons of squirrels emerged from wherever they hide in the winter, scampering all over the Common and the Public Garden in search of sustenance. The luckier ones clustered around one particular tree in the Public Garden, where one guy was tossing food at them. And this white squirrel stood out from the rest. Read more.
Mary Ellen went for a walk along the Charles in Millennium Park this morning and came across this young bald eagle surveying the snowy scene.
