Riverfront Birdwatching - Not So Much

This was the view earlier this week from in front of the building where I work, as Water Street between Fourth and Fifth Streets, and its associated parking lot, are under construction. Usually I can wander over to the the riverfront and easily see what's going on with the local duck and goose population. Now it's something of a no-man's land -- muddy and dotted with miniature ponds from the recent rains. Yesterday I could see large groups of rapidly growing goslings practicing running back and forth on the far bank of the river, strengthening their legs and wings in preparation for the flying lessons that will come soon enough. Today the heavy machinery was back, and enormous sections of concrete pipe are lying in wait to play their part in the infrastructure work.
