Jordan Lake Dam, Haw River, Tuesday, March 2, 2021. Doc Ellen‘s Natural Minute. Or, perhaps this morning, I should say a chipping sparrow natural minute. The small sparrow was very busy looking for seeds down in the grass. You can hear the Haw River running hard down below the riprap. The lake is slowly dropping. It is at 227.51ft. Take care, be safe and most certainly stay well.
