Bird Watching

Big birds have been regular visitors to the Upper Blackstone Water Pollution Abatement District’s 52 mgd treatment plant in Millbury, Mass.

The tom turkey pictured here is one of a group that regularly patrols the plant grounds looking for food. The red-tailed hawk has made several appearances outside the plant administration building.

The great blue heron fishes in a final settling tank that served the plant before a major upgrade. It is home to shiner minnows that the bird craves. Sharon Lawson, pretreatment coordinator and laboratory specialist for the district, submitted these pictures.
