Charles River White Geese:  Grandma, babies and a reprehensible government agency.

Here are a few photos from today, June 16, 2014.

1. Reprehensible Government Agency.

The irresponsible crushed rock dominates the core part of the nesting area.

This stuff was “properly” dumped as part of two highways supposedly making up for work related to the BU Bridge repairs.

When the irresponsible railroad workers used the most sensitive area for parking, they dumped more crushed stone because the area had been denuded by the Charles River “Conservancy” and by prior irresponsible workers.  And the workers were too lazy to walk a few hundred feet from the area under the Memorial Drive overpass.

When they left, “somebody” came back and dumped another load.

In the middle of this outrage, the Executive Director of the Cambridge Conservation Commission condemned the irresponsible parking and the most destructive manager told them to get out of the tiny area protected by the Cambridge Conservation Commission but encouraged the irresponsible parking outside the tiny protected area.

The destructive manager goes back and forth between lying about being a decent human being and bragging about how irresponsible his agency is.  Their goal is to kill off or drive away as many resident animals as they can get away with.  So he lies “no intent to harm” and brags about starving them.

2. Grandma, babies and the crushed stone.

In my last goose photos, I pointed out a gander with vestigial Brown China markings and commented that there was another with similar vestigial markings, but I thought she might be dead.

Brown Beauty lives!!!

I have the same problem, thankfully, with Brown Beauty as I do with the Charles River White Ducks.  I do not see her a few times and I think she is dead.

She is alive and in the nesting area.

I will not do a photo by photo analysis, but here are photos from today.

There are a couple of photos of a single baby who is changing colors from yellow to white.  He is approaching adolescence.

A number of other photos follow the pair I have been keeping an eye on.  Those photos also include a brown goose.  That is Brown Beauty.  She is now elderly, but she is now with us.  18 years old.

You may notice among other members of the gaggle, various geese who have black markings mixed in with their whiteness.  These would be grandchildren of Brown Beauty or offspring of the Toulouse Goose who was dropped in the area in 2000.  My memory is that the black markings, at least for Brown Beauty’s progeny, show up in the second generation.  Black Markings also appear in the progeny of the Toulouse, but I do not recall if her first generation babies were like that.  Brown Beauty’s babies have small black markings at most.  It is some of Brown Beauty’s second generation offspring who have the significant black markings.

The vestigial Brown China male is from a different family in the gaggle.

This last photo is a good breakout of the baby pair, their parents, and Brown Beauty.  The two babies are center front close together.  One is half in the shadow.  Behind them and to the right are their parents.  Behind them and to the left is Brown Beauty.

In the preceding two photos, the family gets further and further away from the camera.  The two photos before that are of the baby nearing adolescence.

And this last photo is an excellent demonstration of the rottenness of the "people" with whom we are dealing. In the rear is the eastern of the two formally created pathways.  You can see where the path ends.  The rest of the crushed stone is pure rottenness.

All a gift of a Sierra Club branch which praises environmental destroyers.

The plans for destruction under House Bill H4009 are in my letter to the Cambridge City Council posted at

These are the official plans posted when they sought Obama moneys, lying of disease to the public.  They have been fighting to destroy these trees for 10 years.  Do not be conned.  Any deviation from these plans will be minor.

The exact citation is House Bill H4009 is Section 2C, line item 2890-7020.

The photos of trees marked for destruction on the Cambridge Common are posted in two parts:


My letter of objection to the Cambridge City Council is posted at:  The letter includes smaller reproductions of the actual photos.

The Cambridge City Clerk's Printing of my letter and the attachments far surpasses in quality my records.  It is posted at:

On June 3, 2014, I posted on YouTube my presentation of that letter, at

4. Contacts: Protect against destruction.

I have repeatedly reported on the outrages being inflicted on the Charles River and the Cambridge Common.

I included in the letter to the Cambridge City Council objecting to its imminent outrages on the Cambridge Common my objections to House Bill H4009 initiated by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.  This will destroy hundreds of trees between the BU Bridge and the Longfellow Bridge, and ALL such destruction is coordinated with the City of Cambridge.  Passage could be imminent.

I summarized many other ongoing and recently accomplished environmental outrages for the City Council of the City of Cambridge has filthy hands.

The imminent target of destruction is the excellent common just north of Harvard Square in Cambridge, MA, USA.

If you would like to be recorded opposing to these outrages, please send an email to  That will get your email to Donna Lopez, the City Clerk.  As part of your email, ask that your email be forwarded to the Cambridge City Council and included in their Communications for the next meeting.

Support of my letter opposing the destruction on the Cambridge Common and the destruction in H4009 concerning multiple destruction of trees and animals on the Charles River would be helpful.

Of greater value in opposing the outrages on the Charles River would be communications to state officials as follows:

5. Tip.

The key with the Cambridge City Council is that their weakness is a very distressing and continued lie that they are pro-environment.

One of the major purposes of the fake company union groups is to perpetuate this lie.

It is a very major weakness, but the lack of response to complaint concerning their destruction on the Cambridge Common is not encouraging.

There are four out of nine newcomers.  One might be subject to persuasion.  The balance could be possibly be embarrassed into decency.  I have major zoning victories as an environmental technique in Cambridge.  It was common to get approvals from the “conservatives.”  The “liberals” were then embarrassed into compliance with their claimed positions.

Of major importance with legislators is a widespread contempt for the Department of Conservation and Recreation and its destructiveness.  Cambridge, MA, is a distinctive entity which is in sync with the problems that the DCR embodies.
