Two Green Herons

Saturday morning, I was taking photos of a green heron at Lake Tamarack (see first photo below), trying to follow it as it flew from branch to branch along the shore.   After a while, a second green heron came onto the scene (see second photo below).  At one point, I was able to get them both in one photo (see photo above).  Click here to link to a post with more green heron photos that were taken in May.

Back in 1971, there was an article in The Atlanta Constitution about Bent Tree’s golf course, which was under construction at the time.  The article mentioned the “forest-framed fairways”; that is still a perfect descriptor today.

Pollinators Galore

Yesterday was the final day of 2019’s National Pollinator Week.  While the power was out at our cabin, I took a morning stroll down one of Bent Tree’s trails, and came across a patch of blooming Downy False-foxglove that was literally buzzing with pollinators.  Look closely at the photo above to see a pollen basket on the bee.

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).
