Village Creek Drying Beds

The Village Creek Drying Beds are located in Arlington, TX. These beds are part of an old sewage treatment plant. It is a hotspot for migrating birds and is known throughout the country for its variety of bird life.

After a long drought, the beds were totally dry. In the summer of 2014, the city added water to the beds, but this was just a stop gap for the hot summer.

Then, in the spring and fall of 2015, the state of Texas was inundated with rainfall. This welcomed rain fall has brought the VCDB back to life!

I captured this image of a flight of four Buffleheads as they migrated through the VCBD in the Spring of 2016.
