From December 2004 until December 2007, The Alewife newspaper covered the neighborhood of North Cambridge, Mass. It was a wonderful community of businesses, writers and photographers. The paper is no longer printed, but this Web site continues both as an archive and as an ongoing blog dedicated, mostly, to this humble little corner of the universe.
I explored Alewife Reservation this morning from 7-9am. I got my first kingfisher of the year, and accidentally flushed a woodcock. At this time of year the underbrush isn't too bad, so I was able to get to Perch Pond. No wood ducks there, but it is where I saw the heron and sharp-shinned hawk.
