Okefenokee Swamp and Jekkyl Island, Georgia. Last updated: 5/6/2006

Above and below two: One of two Gray Kingbirds photographed on Jekkyl Island, Georgia (5/6/2006).

Below two: An American Alligator in Okefenokee Swamp (5/6/2006). I'm very familiar with alligators, but sharing a 15-foot-wide channel with dozens of them is another story! Today I also saw my first foot-long young-of-last-year alligators, and first heard the bellowing growl of territorial male gators.

Below: Mixed pine and palmetto habitat in Okefenokee Swamp, ideal for Bachman's Sparrows and Red-cockaded Woodpeckers. The former were easily located by tracking down their distinctive calls.
