Our next stop after Jekyll was a causeway in the Brunswick, GA area. It was not the prettiest spot, and we had to bird watch from a gravel road that was a good distance from the water. For those reasons, all of my pictures from this spot are grey and fuzzy, so I won't share many.
However, I have to share one because...
|Here is our golden bird!|
The American Avocet!
The boys have been wanting
to spot one of these
(my apologies for the pic quality)
Then we made our way to St. Simon's Island. It was a very blustery day! In fact, the boys wondered if a hurricane was coming. No hurricanes, fortunately, but the winds were so strong that we had difficulty keeping our binoculars and the camera steady.
|Despite the weather, there were many birds to see!|
|Such a beautiful place!|
|More egrets :)|
|We took a little time to visit Bloody Marsh,|
(homeschoolers are always up for a history lesson)
where the Scotish Highlanders defeated the Spanish,
forcing them from the Georgia colony.
|We also birded the causeway to St. Simon's|
where we spotted many birds.
This was a new one for our lifelist:
