On November 9, I completed my first survey of a pocket marsh. This little marsh was cut off back in the 1960’s and has filled in over the years. My assignment is to find out what birds are using the area now. My! I love these assignments. It is wetlands filled with various marsh grasses. Surprisingly there are quite a few birds using it. My favorite one is the Sedge Wren. It was so close to me I could almost touch it. What a subtle beauty. There were also some Wood Storks hanging out as well.

Oh gosh....I am way behind on this blog. I have been working on several projects all at the same time. But now I have one of the largest projects out of the way. I can now catch up.

It is a matter of perspective. Back in July, we had a festival meeting on Jekyll. I wrote in my blog how enjoyable the drive to Jekyll was with all the wild flowers in bloom accented by the breathtaking vistas. During the birding festival, I heard comment after comment about the beautiful causeway and all those wildflowers. An artist friend and I were talking a little later about art. She had a beautiful painting of the entrance to Jekyll. She commented about the nature beauty of the drive to Jekyll.
So imagine my surprise when at the JIA board meeting there was a plea to do something about the Jekyll Causeway, it was a tunnel.
