Savannah – Yesterday I visited the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge with my folks and thoroughly enjoyed it. We got there about an hour or so after low tide, so I was expecting some good wading bird photo opportunities in some of the tide effected areas of the wildlife drive, but it wasn’t to be. Instead, I saw something I’d never seen before in one low tide area, a Grackle hunting and eating crabs. I didn’t turn out to be a dry run for wading birds, though; all along the wildlife drive, there were Great Egrets and Great Blue Herons feeding out in the flooded impoundments. Later along the wildlife drive, we saw a Great Egret feeding near the roadway and I was able to get some good photos of it. The Red Winged Blackbirds, always a favorite, were out in force and I got some good photos of some males “singing the song of their people” as well. Even thought it was a bit early in the day and they weren’t all out sunning on the banks yet, it was a decent day for Alligator watching as well.
