This was one of the most amazing birding spots ever! I could not believe how thousands of birds flew past at sunset to roost in the trees. I saw more of each species than I have ever seen before--by far!

This place was really pretty and huge. I could definitely go back again. Many of the graves are so old, and there is a lot of history. There was a red fox there sitting by a grave that reads, "blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see god." Seems like something from a movie. Unfortunately left my long lens in the trunk and so only got far shots of the fox.
Returned to Savannah today to do some more in the city. First stop (as it started to rain) was this beautiful old church from the turn of the century.
Still in the mood to visit nature centers today. This one was pretty expansive with many animals and a nice nature walk through the woods.
Went to the fort at St. Simons Island and it was pretty interesting! Definitely worth the trip and the walk around the grounds. Also enjoyed seeing (and photographing) wildlife on the property: deer, green anole, broad-headed skink, snail, praying mantis and a variety of bird species.
Saw the sunset and several birds at this park. One thing that was really cool, but I couldn't figure out what it was is this squid-like creature just at the edge of the tide.
