Tybee Island Birding

Last Saturday I took the day off and went birding with my friends John & Marge. We went up to Tybee Island. This is the island that is east of Savannah. It is an eclectic mix of new large up scaled homes, old art& craft cottages, 1950 style hotels, quant boutiques and great birds A Lark Sparrow had been found so we went looking for it. We were also going to go look at the Purple Sandpipers that hang out on the beach. The Lark sparrow was a no show but it was nice running into other Georgia birders while we waited. The sandpipers were just where they were supposed to be hanging out with Sanderlings and Ruddy Turnstones. Great day great birds and great seeing old friends, it does not get any better.

November in review

It has been a very busy November. Working mostly on festival summary 2007 and a major commission, I though it would be best if I just showed you some of the events in pictures. Enjoy! .

Yellow-crowned Night-Heron November 15
Wild Birds Unlimited Nature Shop of Jekyll and Coastal Georgia Audubon teamed up to put a partridge in a pear tree or better yet a pine cone birdfeeder in the backyard. The children and young at heart that came to the Lighting of the tree on Jekyll November 24 had fun with this activity.

More birds, art, and Jekyll coming in December.
