Scenic Week-Ends
Pickwick Dam on the Tennessee River, USA, November 26, 2015

After eating Thanksgiving lunch with our cousins, we drove over to Pickwick to see if the Gulls and Herons were there.

Ring-Billed Gulls and Great Blue Herons

When water is being released through the spillways, the Gulls and Herons have a wonderful time fishing.

Most of the gulls we see are Ring-Billed Gulls, but there are other kinds here, too.

Four Great Blue Herons

The Herons are well camouflaged as they rest after eating.

This one is ready to go back for a second helping, just as we all did at our Thanksgiving feast!

  1. Hello Lea, cool shot of the dam! The birds are awesome, love the GB Herons and the gulls. Great post. Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

  2. Wonderful shots. I love herons and really enjoyed seeing the Great Blues.....Happy Critter Day!

  3. There looks to be rich pickings once the sluice gates open. The gulls and herons had a good Thanksgiving meal I think.

  4. I love the shots of the herons! Wow!

  5. Wow, that is a dam, lovely. I love Herons and Gulls, fantastic.

  6. These are great.

    This is so neat to see because I just saw my first great blue heron here only this morning. It was hanging out by our neighbor's pond. It was too far away to get a decent pic though.

  7. Gulls are so graceful. Herons are not always graceful but they are awesome!

  8. Beautiful images! Watching them would be a perfect way to spend an afternoon.

  9. Spectacular action photos and stills.
    The Blue Herons are nicely camouflaged with the rocks in the background.
    Have a Beautiful Day!
    Peace :)

  10. Wonderful photos Lea. I love seeing the gulls on the wing and those Great Blue Herons are beautiful birds. They are always so patient when they fish.

  11. Absolutely magnificent!!!! Seriously. They all are picture post card perfect.

    Thanks for adding your link at I'd Rather B Birdin' this weekend!!!

  12. Fantastic shots !!
    Greetings !

  13. Great pics, Lea. I am a big fan of the Great Blue Heron. They're great!

  14. As I commented above...beautiful, picture post card perfect!!

  15. Hi Lea. The spillway provided a wonderful Thanksgiving smorgasbord for the birds! They're all such great pictures.

  16. Love that you captured the outstretched wings of the GBH. Nice in flight shots, too.

  17. Lovely photos, Lea. The bird shots are wonderful.
