We started south and birded the best spots (as listed in Giff Beaton's Birding Georgia) between Jekyll Island and Savannah. We returned home with lots of sand in our shoes, major sunburns, hundreds of amazing memories, a feeling of refreshment, and well over 600 pictures.
I do not think anyone will stick around for a 600 picture slide show, so I won't share all of them. I had planned just to share my favorites in one post until I started the process of loading all those photos.
Ahem, I have quite a few favorites! ;)
I decided it would be best to break this into a few posts by locations we visited. It will be like a mini-version of our vacation. We will start the tour at Jekyll Island, one of the most beautiful places on the planet!
Enjoy! I sure did. :)

|The boys and I search for birds.|
|Great Blue Heron|
|A new life-lister for us: Sanderlings!|
|We're not just about the birds!|
We saw lots of wildlife, including several types of dragonflies.
|The bridge leading on to Jekyll is gorgeous!|
Return soon for pictures from a causeway in the Brunswick area, where we added a much-sought-after bird to our list. We will also visit St. Simons Island.
