This was definitely a tourist day. Skip this post if you are looking for nature photos!
One of my favorite things to show to visitors to Boston is the purple glass windows on Beacon Hill. The color is the result of too much manganese oxide in the glass manufacturing process (dating to the early 1800s). Over time, the glass reacted to sunlight and changed color.
What bird would you expect to see in a major city?
Yes, that's right: pigeons.
There were also plenty of mallards and Canada geese at the duck ponds in the gardens. I didn't bother taking any photos of them!
