It’s been a couple of weeks since I’d been out to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge so yesterday morning I took a ride across the Savannah River and drove the Laurel Hill Wildlife Drive. I’ve been under the weather recently and didn’t feel up to walking any of the trails, so all of the day’s photos were from right along the road. Despite not getting back along some of the trails, it still turned out to be a pretty good visit. The water level in the diversion canal was down a bit so there were more alligators to see in and along it; the total count for the day was 23. I also saw a Wood Stork at Savannah NWR for the first time; out of all of the times I’ve visited it came a surprise that I’d never seen one there until today. There’s an Anhinga nest I’ve been watching at the NWR since nesting season began and yesterday I saw the young Anhingas for the first time; it’s easily seen from the roadway and with a zoom lens or binoculars you can see the young birds in the nest.
