I was down at Birdsong Nature Center in Grady Co. this morning. It was
pretty slow, though I did manage to find 4 Henslow's Sparrows and a
Grasshopper Sparrow. Henslow's can again be found there this winter, though
they don't seem to be as plentiful as they were last year. The most unusual
sighting I had, however, was on the way home along Gainy Rd., also in Grady
Co. A beautiful male Ring-necked Pheasant was seen alongside the road. I
know they are occasionally seen in Georgia, but this was the first one I
have seen this side of the Atlantic.
Another note on Cedar Waxwings. I saw a few small flocks in southwest GA
during November, but have not seen any since. I did however see about 1000
around the parking lot at Ft. Pulaski near Savannah on 25th Jan.
All the best,
