Guntersville Dam is just a quick skip and a hop across the highway from our mountain so Morgan and I decided to take a peek there last month on the way to town. There are walking trails to be explored and its a great place to bird.This is the east side of the dam on the Tennessee River. While we were there, a horn blew and next thing you know...out comes a boat from the lock. We drove over to the west side to take a few quick shots. The Great Blue Herons seemed to love this wall for sitting.We saw quite a few Herons.This monstrous tower hovered above and Morgan could not look up at it without getting dizzy,but I heard an Eastern Bluebird and was bound and determined to find it. Well there was a bird on the tower, but it was a Red-headed Woodpecker!Then I spotted my Bluebird using the scaffolding as a perch to hunt from! I think he had a pretty good view of his tasty treats below! We'll be going back to Guntersville Dam for more birding adventures for sure!
