Juvenile Fledgling Green Heron

In my backyard, I spotted a green heron flying across a lagoon in my backyard.  I then saw a small heron in some underbrush on the other side so I investigated and found three fledgling Green Herons!

Putting In your time

One thing that I think some birders do that is basically the worst thing you can do is to neglect birding. I personally don't think you can call yourself a birder if you bird once a month. Put more TIME into birding. Or whatever your hobby or interest is. It will vastly improve your skill more than the best field guide, or the best pair of binoculars. Time is one of the most important things when it comes to anything. And we all wish we had more of it.

I thought this picture of a White Throated Sparrow looked rather amusing. He looks rather mean. But maybe cause he got a little wet after the rain.  Make sure you follow our blog! Giveaway contest once we reach 20 followers!

Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers Will Always Be Unique

I always think Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers or any kind of Sapsucker for that matter will always be unique. Because of their color pattern. There is none like it. And the way they feed! If you look at Elm, Oak, and Sweetgum trees ( their favorite) you might see rings of holes covering the entire tree. That is from a Sapsucker! They are very efficiant which I think makes them even more unique.

The Beauty of Summer Goldfinches

I will always love the color of Eastern Goldfinches in the Spring and Summer. There are not many other birds in Georgia that can compare. News: Due to a lack of publicity the blog is currently not being posted on daily. If you could help us get more followers we will continue to put our time and work into this blog and eventually make it a daily blog.
