You just never know what you are going to find when you go out birding. 
About a month ago, I told Ben Carswell that Reddish Egrets were a rare bird on Jekyll. Well, just don’t challenge mother nature. She will just prove you wrong. So why was I surprised when I found not one Reddish Egret but two at the south end of Jekyll. Here, are a few pictures of the egrets.
Also on the beach were gulls, Lesser Black-backed Gull,
Herring Gull, Ring-billed Gull and the ever-present Laughing Gull.  Here is a young Laughing Gull.

It certainly is fun just to stand out there for a couple of hours and watch the shorebirds, terns and gulls.
