Urban Bird Dog

October 13, 2008
Southeast Clarke Park, Athens, GA

It is amazing how many places there are in and around Athens that can make a bird dog happy. Almost everywhere I take her on campus or in parks I find pockets of grass, weeds, shrubs with lots of scents and quite a few birds, migrating and resident. And over the past few weeks, Tessa has taught me that right at sunset, places like this one is where the birds go.

Southeast Clarke Park is located on the outskirts of town right off U.S. 78 near the Super Wal-Mart. It has soccer and softball fields, tennis courts, a skate park and some walking trails. All is fairly manicured except for this good-sized unkempt field of high grass and autumn weeds; I attached the check cord and turned her loose and watched her loving it.
