The Channel is Complete

Part of the river restoration project was to preserve the Blue Heron rookery on Bird Island. This work appears to be mostly complete. I think they did a good job. What say you?

The natural flow in the river at this point was to the west; toward Alabama. During low flow periods the roots to the trees were exposed and and the tree was leaning dangerously. The birds were disturbed for a few months with the noise of heavy equipment and daily blasting to break up the rock. I hope they haven't been too traumatized.

It is a beautiful scene. I'd say it was worth the effort!

It's beautiful Barb..I remember way back when you showed us the beginnings of this work. It took a while but looks as if its always been like this, as you say hopefully the wildlife will settle back after the havoc..
