Urban Oasses, # 1

Because I spend much of the week in the urban setting of downtown Boston I try to look for little patches of green space wherever and whenever I can, One such place is a little section of park that I pass through almost every day on my way to and from work along the Rose Kennedy Greenway, which is maintained by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation. While a few acres of grass, shrubs and flowering trees is far from an ideal habitat for wildlife these little plots of land do provide food and shelter for year-round urban birds as well as migrants and seasonal birds. Over the course of the summer I'll be making occasional entries under the title of "Urban Oases" as I notice green spaces and wildlife in unexpected city settings.
