Things are Turning Green Again – Spring Visits to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge

Savannah – I’ve made a couple of visits to the Savannah NWR recently and it’s obvious that Spring is here; things are turning green again. With the exception of Coots and a handful of Blue Winged Teal and Northern Shovelers, the migratory ducks have left. The egrets and herons are in their breeding plumage. The alligators and turtles are out sunning in larger numbers.

The Savannah NWR is also a good spot for watching iron birds
