In the spring, Bald Eagles perform amazing aerial courtship displays. The eagles can be seen performing high speed roller coaster dives, do impressive barrel rolls, fly upside down with their talons facing the other. This can also be seen when young are in training for adulthood during mock battles and mock mating flights, as well as when an eagle is defending its territory. You may also see the eagles lock talons, causing both to spiral downward in a cartwheeling motion and release before they hit the ground.
Follow me on a journey of the unveiling of Lake Beseck.
A 16' drawdown for the purpose of a dam repair did not only reveal a fascinating 1920's trolley bed, but a lake congested with silt, invasive plants and years worth of garbage in need of our attention.
As the drawdown progressed, nature began its course. A variety of birds are seen wading in the vegetation stalking their prey, diving from the sky carrying fish away in their talons and standing in the shallows waiting for fish that are trying to escape to deeper water.
A month of captivation embracing a variety of perspectives.
Terrestrial growth as a result of the lengthy draw down of Beseck Lake for dam repairs, that began in October of 2013.
CTDEEP began lowering Beseck Lake in October of 2013 as a result of a needed dam repair. Many people had concern about what would happen to the fish population with the 16' draw down. Eight months later, with the lake still significantly drawn down, fishermen were seen reeling in a variety of fish near the dam, birds were seen grabbing fish in their talons, and fish were seen spawning along the banks.
