Hi folks, on my way to the coast yesterday, I stopped at a few places in Treutlen Co. to listen for American Woodcock. While I didn't hear any woodcock, I did hear a handful of Eastern Whip-poor-wills in the western part of the county. On my way home (again to try to find American Woodcock), I stopped at several places in northeastern Appling County and heard several more whip-poor-wills along E. River Rd. near Moody Forest.
I also stopped by Lake Lindsay Grace (western Wayne Co., west of Jesup, GA) to look for waterfowl. The lake was fairly busy with boating activity & devoid of ducks, but there was an adult Snow Goose feeding with a handful of Canada Geese at a pasture pond adjacent to the park. The bird has been there at least for a couple of days, as noted by lake residents.
