New signs, reflecting the amended Lake & Wildlife Rules approved by the Board last September, are now in place around Lake Tamarack.  The lake was restocked last month with 10,000 small bream as a food supply for the bass (which were reported to be overpopulated and undersized).

When It Rains, It Pours.

The photo above shows some of the aftermath of the 6-8 inches of rain that Bent Tree received before daylight on Thursday (August 1, 2013).  A large section of Tamarack Drive washed out. Both Fox 5 and WSB did live broadcasts from Bent Tree covering the flood. Following are some random pictures from the day.

Currently, it is the the highest priced house in Bent Tree (on FMLS).  I don’t know the owner, and have never been in the home. But, I have always thought it looked like one of the best lake lots in the community. It sits at the end of Hummingbird Lane, a small street located between the dam and the spillway.  Note: the photo of the hummingbird above was taken in September 2012 at the spillway.

Wind Beneath Their Wings

Turkey vultures (a.k.a. turkey buzzards) may not be pretty, but they were putting on a “dam” good show, yesterday. There were about 40 of them catching the wind currents around the dam and across Lake Tamarack. Several of them kept swooping down just above road level, then soaring high again.
