Savannah National Wildlife Refuge; 14 March 2014

Savannah – Even though the weather wasn’t promising, I took a ride over to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge yesterday morning. It turned out to be a wonderful ride through the refuge with only a short period of mist and the photography conditions turned out not to be all that bad after all.

Spring is definitely on the way. Leaves are beginning to bud out, flowers are beginning to bloom, and brown is turning to green! The migratory waterfowl are almost all gone except for a few Blue Winged Teal and some American Coots. Alligators are coming out in bigger numbers and yesterday I saw a lot of young and small Alligators. The Red Winged Blackbirds red flashes are brighter and there could be hint of the Anhinga’s blue faces for mating season beginning to show…
