Days 407 and 408. Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese looks bad

We conducted visibilities on Monday and Tuesday, January 14 and 15, days 407 and 408, at the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese on the Charles River at the intersection of the BU Bridge and its on ramp to Memorial Drive in Cambridge, MA, USA.

It looks bad.

Both days we were there in early rush hour, after, apparently, the railroad’s workers left.

On Monday, the gaggle was huddled against the BU Bridge at the bottom of the slope and near the Charles River. They moved closer to the tree they have lived their life under since the Department of Conservation and Recreation and Cambridge started deliberately starving them by walling off Magazine Beach. They did not go all the way. They huddled against the Charles River in an area that was densely vegetated until the falsely named Charles River “Conservancy” started destroying the environment for the DCR.

On Tuesday, they were in the second location when I came and moved up the artificially created undeveloped area by the BU Bridge when a couple of good people came, perhaps with needed food.

The ground which has been their main habitat since the start of starvation looks like a solid floor. It is hard to believe that the destruction which existed before could be made worse, but it has been made significantly worse, apparently unhabitable.

It is possible that these irresponsible people have finished their job and left to leave additional destruction to someone else.

The reality is that the BU Bridge workers, except for the plans from the DCR, functioned responsibly. The task was transferred to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation after most of the task was dictated by a really irresponsible agency. MassDOT did not implement the DCR’s goals of killing off all animals any more than was dictated by the DCR and Cambridge.

This latest phase from Commuter Rail with DCR blessing is inexcusable, downright rotten, behavior. This latest phase is consistent with the rotten situation in the City of Cambridge and with regard to Cambridge’s multiple irresponsible cohorts.
