I know there had been plans to breach the dikes and flood the area, ostensibly for salmon, and other reasons. There were community mtgs for a few years running and finally, decisions made, but, like everything else, action was a long time coming, so I decided to live with my memories of years gone by, and wait to hear from area residents and/or birding friends that things are in motion. That time seems to have arrived.
If any of you know a bit about this and could do a 'simple' summary and/or send a link or two to some documents, I'm sure others as well as I would certainly appreciate it, and will pass it on to other, non-Tweeters nature lovers. I've already gotten a few responses to my oblique comment in today's post - those folks were surprised to hear the news. We wonder if the owls, hawks, falcons, blackbirds, shorebirds, shrikes, wrens, etc., that have wintered in that once-gem of an area, will show up elsewhere. And the hunters, where will they be hunting?
Perhaps some unexpectedly good things will come of this loss...
