North Tybee Beach 3/10/13

The morning before I left from Tybee Island over spring break I had the fantastic opportunity to go birding with Diana Churchill at the north end of the island. We saw quite a few species, some of which I have not seen in a while. I love going out with such a knowledgeable and fun expert, and I can’t wait to go back!
