At the sod farm in eastern Washington county off of highway 242 there was a Northern Harrier eating a Killdeer in the fog to start the day.
At Harris Neck the storks are gone from Woody Pond. Lots of Blue-winged Teal and White Ibis and a Yellow-crowned Night Heron but Harris Neck was very slow.
Altamaha was at least as slow. A couple of American Coots and Anhingas as well as many Common Moorhens but many fewer birds than a month ago.
At Goulds Inlet I found a Redish Egret and on a distant sandbar there were several Black-bellied Plover in breeding plumage.
Andrews Island Causeway and the marsh behind the Jekyll Island visitors center held nothing of interest at high tide.
There were approx. 40 wood storks at the end of the bridge from Brunswick to Jekyll Island in the pond just west of the southern footing of the bridge.
Jekyll Island South Beach had 2 Common Terns and the walkway had a Common Ground-dove as well as a Louisiana Waterthrush where there is a pool of water (definitely Louisiana rather than Northern).
