On the Georgia coast Birding Rampage Pt.2

I had a great time birding Little St. Simons Island this morning. Highlights were Long Billed Curlew, Reddish Egret, Great Black Backed Gull, Roseate Spoonbills, and Red Knots. I got ten lifers total on this birding field trip. The wind was maddeningly powerful. It shook our spotting scopes and cameras making it very very hard to see shorebirds at times. We also ran into some jumper cactus that stuck into our shoes and poked through and sand burs. But overall it was definitely worth it. Here are some of the pictures from the trip. I hope you enjoyed the report! Have a nice day.
