  1. Just sharing. My daughters and I were strolling on Jekyll Island here in Georgia yesterday. A park ranger caught our attention and showed us the plover chicks. They had hatched just the day before! Cute little buggers. I could not get close enough for decent pictures, but at least you can get an idea.

  2. Yesterday, at a WMA along Georgia's Southern coast. Listed on ebird, the expected species here are Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, Mallard, Wood Ducks, BW Teal, Mottled, Mallard/Mottled hybrid, and American Black Duck/Mottled Hybrid. 

    BW Teal, Wood Duck, and the whistling ducks were all seen. I did not see any male Mallards.

  3. Yesterday, Jekyll Island, GA. Was in a large flock of Royal Terns, and a few Sandwich Terns. Seemed a bit smaller than the Sandwich.

    And then a different one in flight, this one may not be identifiable.

    Lastly, please confirm Gull-billed Tern. This was also yesterday, at a WMA along Georgia's coast. It is a lifer for me, which is why I'd like the confirm. 🙂
