After tropical storm Earl passed, I thought I'd check out the Park
this morning, Sept 4. When I got there it was still but the breeze
soon picked up a bit.
Somebody had pulled the plug on the Charles. It was a ditch with
a small amount of brown water at the bottom. The dock was resting
on the bank.

Post-script to earlier report:
On Aug 1 I reported hearing a Ruby-crowned Kinglet at this site.
I didn't see the bird, and after listening to some tapes I think
that perhaps an American Goldfinch fooled me then as it has in
different ways before.
