Until Thursday, I hadn’t visited the Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge since they had to remove a lot of pine trees because of a pine beetle infestation. From what I understand, the pine trees really weren’t supposed to be in that area and they plan on letting hardwoods grow up in their place instead of replanting pines. The removal has definitely altered the landscape around Bluebill Pond. Additionally, Snipe Pond is far different from the last time I visited; instead of three ponds separated by dikes, it’s now one pond with half of dike leading into it. As a result, you can’t access the back of Woody Pond from back of Snipe Pond; the best way to get to the back of Woody Pond will probably be by the trail just before you get to Snipe Pond.

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
