I had a great moment this evening while traveling along the Alabama coast. I came across an oil boom covered in birds as the light was fading. The boom was acting as a funnel and trapping fish as the tide was heading out. The birds, Brown Pelicans, Snowy Egrets and Black-crowned Night Herons, stood waiting. And Black Skimmers were working the waters just off the boom in flight. It was a nice end to another emotionally draining day.
