Birdwatching on the Charles River in Watertown

I have seen some unbelievable fish (striped bass) and birds (hawks) at the Charles River along Pleasant Street in Watertown. This photo was taken today on the bridge behind Sasaki Associates, where we spend a lot of time walking and birdwatching. There are two types of heron in this photo, and unfortunately there’s also an occasional bike or beer keg in the river too. I recently joined Trees for Watertown and the Brookline Bird Club to learn more and get involved in the local environmental community.
