I decided to go by the Leonabell Turnbull Birding Center to see how much progress has been made on the Hurricane Harvey reconstruction. Join me as we walk about
The Farley boat has been replanted
The plant labels are back. This is a Firecracker plant.
A new information sign with leaflet containers.
This is a sign detailing the recovery plan. It also asks for patience.
I retook this photo since it amazes me how much vegetation was taken by the storm. Those three mothballed oil rigs were not visible before the Hurricane.
The Port Aransas Garden Club has adopted a site at the center.
There is always some idiot who sticks their head in the Alligator sign.
I had hoped to see a lot of birds listed. But we do know Big Bird Little Bird, a coot, a pelican, Kristi, James, and Jane were spotted. I can’t read the frown face
Unfortunately, the access to the birding center is still not repaired.
The alligator’s swamp is still filled with debris (He is fine and living in another part of the reserve)
The Cattails are beautiful.
Reminders not to feed the wildlife anything including yourself. Sorry that the center is still under construction but it looks a lot better than it did. I’ll come back when the walkways are finished.
