Swamp, fog and woodpeckers

Saturday was another Christmas Bird Count Day. This was the Okefenokee Swamp count. Now this is not the birdiest spots but it does have a few great birds. There is a Red-cockaded Woodpecker colony in my area. Annette Bittaker was my partner for the day. She & I marveled at the number of woodpeckers we found. Around noon the woods got very quiet. After that we struggled to find the few birds that were around. Still it was fun to bird with Annette. Plus the swamp is beautiful. See.

We finished our count day with these wild turkeys. It was a great finish to a day of birding in a unique place.
