Those who have lived in this area since the late seventies and early eighties will remember Phipps Bend as the site of a TVA nuclear power plant that was never completed. The project was 40% complete when it was abandoned in 1981, leaving the skeleton of cooling tower base and a few buildings.

What we found was a beautiful area full of wildlife, flowers, and yes, some colorful birds.
