You can see these birds in Georgia now.

We are in October and these bird species are been reported in our State.  You can see them too...if you haven't already.

A Tricolor Heron has also been reported in Dougherty County in the same area, Lily Pond Road.,-84.2185307&ll=31.51263,-84.2185307

Gray-cheeked Thrush are showing up in multiple places in Georgia, including Bibb County.  Keep an eye out for them.  

The coastal areas have their own gems.  Long-billed Curlew and Franklin's Gull in Glynn County and Pomarine Jaeger in Liberty County.  

The birds are out and going through our State for Fall Migration.
Happy birding!
