I'm back home and will try to continue this post that I started a week ago about Millwood Dam. Blogger seems to be cooperating again. Maybe it was because I was on the laptop that I was having problems.
There were a few Great Blue Heron around the edges.
I guess this one is checking out the water level.
Way out in the middle of this huge lake there was a flock of White Pelicans and a lot of what I think are Cormorants. I wish the photos were sharper and easier to tell, but it was a great distance away (the lake is over 29,000 acres in size).
I just liked the way this little almost island looked. The flock of birds is there on the right, disappearing behind this chunk of land.
On the other side of the road there was a road that took you down to the bottom of the dam along the spillway. Here there were Egrets and Cormorants. There seemed to be two sizes of the egrets.....some smaller ones were on the rocks.
I don't see a lot of Cormorants, so this was interesting for me to see a bunch of them.
3 egrets......they opened one of the gates of the dam while we were there, which stirred up all the birds and these three ended up sitting here together after things settled back down.
Enough of this place, but it was a great place to visit! Arkansas is a lovely state with lots of parks and wildlife areas. I will have more on that when I get to our return trip.
We spent most of the week in Lindale, Texas with one of my sisters. I want to get all this stuff posted while I can remember what and where I saw things.
