Pumping oil in a bird sanctuary!

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Hackberry Ramblers, Cajun band immune to music industry tenets limiting longevity and relevance, hit their prime when they hit their 80's. Luderin Darbone, 89, and Edwin Duhon, 92, founded the Louisiana band in 1933 with fantasies of playing Nashville's venerable Grand Ole Opry. They got there 64 years later in 1997.

This photo of the Oil pump is taken near bird conservation area.

Who said that Texas Crude and Herons do not mix!!! ;-)
