Anhinga Dries Off In Sunny Savannah, Georgia – Jan 15, 2019

The Savannah cam caught this Anhinga, a distinctive waterbird, hanging out to dry below the cam’s vacant nest. When Anhingas aren’t slyly swimming through shallow waters with only their head sticking out, they are easy to spot drying out their waterlogged feathers in sunny areas. Look around the borders of lakes and ponds with forested edges for a sunning bird.

Eastern Kingbird Visits Hellgate Osprey Nest – Aug. 5, 2019

Start your Monday off right with a visit from this sharp-looking Eastern Kingbird to the Hellgate Osprey nest! During the breeding season, these bold flycatchers are fierce defenders of their nesting areas. They are quick to harass bigger birds—like Ospreys, Red-tailed Hawks, or Great Blue Herons—that pass over their territory.

Male Yellow Warbler Hops Into Hellgate [osprey nest] For a Song – June 25, 2019

Male Yellow Warblers sing a sweet series of 6–10 whistled notes that accelerate over the course of the roughly 1-second song and often end on a rising note. The tone is so sweet that people often remember it with the mnemonic “sweet sweet sweet I’m so sweet.”

During the Fall of 2014, a pair of Great Horned Owls began frequenting this recently abandoned Bald Eagle nest adjacent to a protected, nutrient-rich salt marsh along the Georgia coast. The nest sits nearly 80′ above one of the six Audubon International Certified golf courses at The Landings, on Skidaway Island, near Savannah, Georgia.

Over the course of 2015 and 2016, a pair of owls successfully fledged four owlets from the site, but they did not return to breed in 2017. Instead, a pair of Ospreys began renovating the nest and committed to breeding in the same site for 2017.
