Fun on Jekyll's beaches
Jekyll Island is a beautiful natural island off the coast of southern Georgia. I just returned from my annual October trek here for the Colonial Coast Bird & Wildlife Festival. Coming from Florida there is a bit of a "been there done that" feel to this fest as so many of the birds and sites are familiar, but still walking out of your hotel and right out on to the beach each morning is spectacular. Particularly when there are good birds around.
All of the typical subjects were there and we had a few bonuses to boot, including a nice young Reddish Egret (above) and a group of American Oystercatchers (below) that sat in perfect light.
