Savannah – Yesterday we had some of the prettiest weather that Savannah has seen in about a week, so my parents and I decided to drive over to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge and see what we could see. The massive population of American Coots was present as usual (I’ve just about decided that the American Coot = swamp pigeon as far as population size goes!) along with Common Gallinules. There were also plenty of Northern Shovelers about as well as some Blue Winged Teal. Cormorants, Great Blue Herons, and Great Egrets were around as well. Most of the alligator population was laid up from the cold temperatures but we did see one adult and one younger alligator out sunning. Seven Yellow Bellied Sliders were out sunning in the “turtle hole” between the 3.5 and 4 mile marks of the Laurel Island Wildlife Drive.

Most of my amateur radio activity is voice because I mostly operate from a mobile station (listen out for me operating from Jekyll Island, IOTA NA-058). On the radio monitoring side of things, I enjoy listening to military aviation, Fire/EMS, and USCG/Federal comms.
