It’s been a couple of weeks since I made a visit to the Savannah NWR so this morning I went over and drove the Laurel Hill Wildlife Drive and got out to walk to one of the trails. The temperatures were cooler than the recent trend and the winds were high and cool so I didn’t expect to see much. At first I thought it was going to be a fruitless trip but in the end it paid off; I saw several Great Blue Herons, a Glossy Ibis, Tri Colored Herons, Little Blue Herons, Blue Winged Teal, Pied Billed Grebes, Anhingas, and Ospreys as well as the ever present Coots and Gallinules. Despite the cooler temperatures, there were still plenty of alligators to see – I counted 26 of them – but I only saw one turtle today.

I'm an Amateur Radio Operator, Radio Monitoring enthusiast, History enthusiast, and very amateur nature/wildlife photography. 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. My History interests are varied and I enjoy reading about a wide variety of History and visiting historic sites. I take an interest in nature, wildlife, and the environment and particularly enjoy going to the National Wildlife Refuges in my area to take photos. Due to my job, I split time between Savannah and Brunswick, GA View all posts by KF4LMT
