Quiz Bird: What bird do you see here?
Last Week's answer? Scarlet Tanager Juvenile. The solid black wings and tail are the id-ing marks.
Recently I explored the State Botanical Garden of Georgia (link here) during a bird walk with the Oconee Rivers Audubon Society (link here). The SBG are a real gem of a locale. There are built along a site that was visited by William Bartram. Bartram made extensive visits throughout the South in well documented journeys to try and to learn more about the natural life of the American South.
Of course, I am not on such a journey, yet. I made my visit to really learn more about the site and the birds that live and migrate through. This site is truly something to enjoy and explore. The Gardens are also working on removing their invasive species and replacing them with native species. A valiant effort and one that needs support. Birds and insects do much better in native species. I hope to return to the Botanical Gardens soon to learn about the native plants and fauna of Georgia.
Until next time, get out and go birding!
