Beautiful bird

Filed under: Animals, Parks — lessie @ 1:54 pm

I disturbed this beautiful bird, resting at Cater Lake, in an effort to get close enough for a picture. I haven’t cropped the picture, because I wanted to show how close he/she is to dangerous cars, roads, wires, and “civilization.”

That’s one distressing thing about Anderson and Anderson County. I love the rural areas — and they are fast being gobbled up for residential homes and strip malls. How many pastures or fields have I driven by, only to see right next door the rude marks of suburbia. Family farms are disappearing and with them a rural landscape and native habitat.
