Question of the Week – Where the Flint and Chattahoochee Rivers come together

Posted by romeethredge on November 5, 2015

Last week I had several good folks that answered correctly. The photo was of where the Flint and Chattahoochee rivers come together to form the Apalachicola River at the bottom of Seminole County, and the bottom of Georgia. At one time this was the bottom of the United States and below it was Spanish territory.

The town of Chattahoochee Florida is visible at the bottom right of the 1937 photo.

Of course it looks differently now as the Woodruff Dam to form Lake Seminole went in about 1955. The bridge visible near the bottom is still there in pieces. There’s a new bridge of course.

I have a photo here of the new and old bridges and the dam in the distance from a boat trip a few years ago. _DSC4555 _DSC4570

 

This week I have a bird question for you. What is this bird I took  photos of in my yard last week?

Bonus question: Is it a male or female?

    Looks like a Pileated Woodpecker. Female I think.

    Pileated woodpecker. It is a female – the males have a red stripe behind their beak.
