Yesterday was a great day for visiting the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge; the temperature was perfect, the humidity was low in the morning, and the skies were just cloudy enough to cut down glare but still have plenty of wonderful sunlight for photos. It turned out to be a great day for photographing one of my favorite birds – the Red Winged Blackbird. They usually don’t stay in one place long enough to photograph, but yesterday they seemed to be practically modeling for their photos! There are also plenty of common Gallinule families to see, over the last few visits it hasn’t been unusual to see both parents as well as 3 or 4 chicks. Yesterday I got to see one of the parents feeding some of the chicks.

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
