Savannah National Wildlife Refuge Visit; 27 September 2018

Savannah – I made my first visit to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge in quite some time this morning. My parents hadn’t had the opportunity to visit recently either, so they came along as well. The tide was coming up, rapidly so in the diversion canal, so there weren’t a lot of Alligators to be seen, but it turned out to be a great bird day. Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Little Blue Herons, Tricolored Herons, Roseate Spoonbills, White and Glossy Ibis, and Cattle Egrets were numerous. We also saw a solitary Wood Stork. In a surprise given the still Summer-like temperatures, we saw some Blue Winged Teal. It may not feel like Autumn yet, but it’s good to some of the migratory waterfowl beginning to show up!
