Photos from the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge; 14 March 2017

It was an overcast day but it still turned out to be a pretty good day for a refuge visit. Highlights of the visit were relatively up-close encounters with a Wilson’s Snipe, a Snowy Egret, and a Little Blue Heron. You can tell the refuge is in the process of draining some more of the pools now that most of the Migratory Waterfowl have moved on; it will soon be a good time to catch the wading birds like Egrets and Herons feeding on the aquatic life that gets left behind as the pools drain.
