Hi Birders,

I led a group of Carolina Bird Club folks to Altamaha WMA on Saturday morning. We saw 52 species including Glossy Ibis (1), Bald Eagle (1), Northern Harrier, King Rail, Sora (they were everywhere), one dead Common Snipe (roadkill), the following warblers: Magnolia, Yellow, Black-and-White, Common Yellowthroat, A. Redstart, & Palm, Indigo Bunting, Blue Grosbeak & Savannah Sparrow. The obvious highlight was the sighting of 2 Clay-colored Sparrows. Thirteen folks were able to clearly see these birds in short grass on a dike for 2-3 minutes.

Location of the Clay-coloreds: Butler Island, east side of Hwy 17 just south of the DNR maintenance shed. Walk in to the tower, then take a left on the intersecting dike just as you get to the tower. Go right at the first perpendicular dike. The birds were feeding along the edge of the dike about 150 feet to the east.
