Birders might find a trip to the Savannah Airport interesting even if they don't have a scheduled flight. In particular check out the ponds bordering Gulfstream Rd. This road leads from Route 21 out of Garden City past the Coastal Prison and Gulfstream headquarters. Continue along all of the ponds beyond the turn to the main terminal. Near the far end of Gulfstream Rd. where there is a 90 degree bend to the left is one of the best ponds (separated by some distance from the first ponds.) Also this pond has plenty of room on the side of the road to pull off and set up scopes.

Among the birds seen the past couple of days at different times by Alec and Carol McClelland, Beth Roth and Chuck and Elizabeth Prine have been the following: Water Pipits, Common Snipes, Chipping Sparrows, Savannah Sparrows, American Coots (more than 60), Pied-billed Grebes, Lesser Scaup, Hooded Mergansers, Mallard, Meadowlarks, Anhingas, Osprey (diving for fish), Fish Crows, Ring- billed Gulls, Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, Turkey Vultures. There was an unconfirmed report a few weeks ago that Wild Turkeys had been seen on the far side of one of the ponds.
