Adventures in Birding: Savannah and the Low Country

Fully vaccinated and ready to travel! My first Angie Adventure in over a year took me to Savannah, Georgia in search of the Painted Bunting (and also Gullah history but that will follow in a separate post). I found the bunting (side note: two weeks after my trip, one was spotted at Winnemac Park in Chicago, well out of it’s migratory rage!) and many other birds as well.

The following set of pictures are from Harris Neck Wildlife Refuge, with the exception of a couple I took during a morning walk around the salt marsh where I was staying. Harris Neck is known for it’s nesting Wood Storks and is located about an hour south of Savannah.

Next up are from a guided tour of the Pickney Island National Wildlife Refuge on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina which is about an hour north of Savannah.

This final set of mostly shorebirds, with some jellyfish for good measure, is from Tybee Island, just outside Savannah.
