Charles River Peninsula after the flood

For the most part, Charles River Peninsula seems to have survived the flood intact. It is rather soggy and new ponds have emerged on the meadow. The lower trail through the woods is washed out (see above), but other than that things are accessible.

The resident Canada geese (see odd markings) are out in the fields eating grass.

The song sparrows are establishing their territories.

And the red-winged blackbirds (still all males) are hanging out in the brush by the river, singing and singing.

Spring is a coming.

1) Song Sparrow (with chickadees and blue jays)
Why were the blue jays alarmed? A pair of red-shouldered hawks. (I hope they stay!)
2) Song Sparrow (with red-winged blackbirds and Canada geese)
