Where the Charles River used to be

All that brown is normally river bottom. See it larger.

The level of the Charles River where Millennium Park in West Roxbury meets Cutler Park in Dedham and Needham is now so low that somebody who doesn't mind getting their calves wet - and maybe sinking into some mud - could easily wade across at its narrowest points. Read more.

Timber rattlesnake or eastern milk snake?

A little hard to see, but there's a snake near the center of the photo, which Greg Hunt took today at Powell Island, a part of the marshy area along the Charles in Needham, near the Newton line, just across from Millennium Park in West Roxbury. And he reports it didn't like having its photo taken: Read more.

Egret on the Charles

Yesterday afternoon, an egret waded along the shallows on the Cutler Park side of the Charles in Dedham for awhile, before a duck got it riled and it began flapping its wings and tried to make the duck go away and then it walked onto a sandbar in the low river before flying the final 30 feet or so to the Millennium Park side of the river in West Roxbury.

Earlier:
Egrets, she's seen a few.

Guy flying around Millennium Park in West Roxbury

Seems there's this guy who's taken to throwing himself off the top of Millennium Park in West Roxbury, but it's OK because he has both a lightweight engine and a parachute and he flies around the Charles and Millennium Park and Cutler Park, no doubt having the grandest time. Mary Ellen captured him in flight the other day.

Fall leaves along the Needham Line train tracks
