Went into the field this morning for intentional birdwatching. I was making extended observation of briar patches in pastures along Moss Road in Gordon County, Georgia. This guy walked up to within 25 feet of my truck.
Later he showed up again running across the pasture with two more buddies.
February 18, 2018 – The sun shined and the day warmed up. We took a jeep ride to the Resaca Battlefield Park in Resaca, Georgia. Walking along Camp Creek I encountered the bleached bones of a bird. The beak is several inches long and vertebrae near by were relatively large. I would thing it was a Great Blue Heron.
