Jekyll Island's Westside part of the Christmas Bird Count
January 1, 2011 found me out on the north west side of Jekyll. It was Christmas Bird Count time in Glynn County. I was joined by Rockett, Carol, Priscilla. We had a great time but did not get to some places I wanted to go. Still at the end of the day our little group found 75 species. Pam allowed us to come in and see the Buff-bellied Hummingbird. While we watched that bird, a Woodcock showed up. Here are a couple of photos that Pam took for me. Thanks Pam for sharing. I was told we had 151 species for the entire count area. Wow! It has been years since we got that many species. It was a wonderful way to start the year.
