Giff Beaton and I birded a few areas around Gainsville-Hall County this
morning, and although we didn't find anything real rare, we did find an
immature White Ibis and 3 immature Little Blue Herons at Chicopee Woods,
located southeast of Gainsville off of Calvary Church Rd. Other birds at
Chicopee Woods included 1 Great Egret, 2 Great Blue Herons, 2 Green
Herons, an Eastern Screech-Owl and 3 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds.
We also found a Eurasian Collared-Dove in Gainsville. I believe that
they have been found here before, but I'm not sure where. This one was
at the intersection of GA 53 Connector and GA 369 (Jesse Jewell
Also in Hall Co., we stopped at the GA 60 bridge over Squirrel Creek and
had 3 Great Egrets, 2 Great Blue Herons, 2 Green Herons, and
Black-and-white and Hooded Warblers.
In Forsyth Co., we had a Great Egret and a Solitary Sandpiper at the
ponds off of Riley Rd. (between Matt and Silver City), and Giff found
several Cliff Swallows on the Hall/Forsyth Co. line at GA 53 over the
Chestatee R. arm of Lake Lanier.
