Tree stocking, a forestry concept, provides a useful tool for evaluating the degree of success
a city has achieved in cultivating the portion of its urban forest located in the commons,
along the street edge.
The College Hill neighborhood in Providence has done a good job.

Corvus brachyrhynchos
Went for a short morning walk along the Rivanna with people that know birds. They heard or saw white throated sparrows, carolina wrens, tufted titmouse, a fish crow, american crows, a bald eagle, mallards, canada geese, a red shouldered hawk, cardinals, mockingbirds, a ruby crowned kinglet, downy woodpecker, a pileated woodpecker, a red fox, hermit thrush, bluebird, yellow-rumped warbler, raven, sparrow, white-breasted nuthatch, goldfinch, song sparrow, Carolina chickadee, flicker, red-bellied woodpecker, catbird, robin, towhee, starlings.
I saw runners and unidentified flying objects.
The dog walkers are still leaving bags of dog dung on the side of the trail. People too precious to carry the load while they walk.

water tank being taken down
After 80 years of service the 75,000 gallon water tank on Queen Street was deconstructed yesterday. The tank had a distinctive profile, visible at a distance in the Tidewater landscape. I hope I have a picture somewhere of the entire construction. It was a styling tank, it had a roof like the tin man’s cap, a lightening rod and a circumferential walkway with a balustrade.
