I spy with my little eye a fuzzy friend trying to keep warm  #ispywithmylittleeye 🧐 This bat was right at eye level on my walk today and I hope he is warm tucked up like this.  This hoary bat is one of the largest species in the southeast and can eat hundreds of mosquitoes an hour #areyouAWARE #batsarefriends #tanyardcreeknaturetrail #georgiawildlife #gawildlife
I am seeing more of these in north Ga.each year #armadillo #gawildlife #georgiawildlife @lorimbryant
A beaver pond at McGraw Ford Wildlife Management Area. #Beavers are extreme ecosystem engineers. They turned this creek bottom into awesome #duck habitat. We will be adding some wood duck boxes. Several of the trees have died but are showing signs of use by ducks, indicated by some cavities in the trunks.

I happened to meet another birder at a bookstore a few days after Christmas and they invited Bethany and I over to see a rare Rufous Hummingbird that is spending its third winter at their home. I find it so incredible that this little bird, not even 4 inches long, which likely breeds 2,000+ miles away in the Pacific Northwest, has been able to find her way to the same home with a feeder in GA each of the past 3 winters.

Probably the last duck hunt of the season. Glad I got to spend it with this guy. Two out of three wood ducks isn’t bad. #georgiawildlife #georgiawaterfowl #woodduck #waterfowl #waterfowlhunting #12gauge #semiauto #pumpaction #remington #duckhunting #duckblind #duckseason #fatherandson
My oldest grandson, Avery, walked out of our house today and noticed this #bat on this paver near a flower bed.  Since we are not bat experts we have no clue what is wrong with it, my husband carefully carried it to place it under a shelter out of the weather in hopes that it will survive and recover.  Never touch a bat, or allow it to touch you. #wildlife #georgiadnr #savethebats #batsarenotpets #bats #theyeatmosquitoes #georgiawildlife #theycarryrabies
It’s always a good day when you kill a pintail in Georgia #waterfowlhunting #georgiaduckhunting #georgiawildlife #georgiahunting #pintail #duckhunting
POINT!!! Everyone should be lucky enough to experience a mule-drawn wagon wild ‘bird’ hunt at least once.  Is moving right at four coveys per hour good?  #bobwhite #bobwhitequail #gentlemanbob #uplandhunting #quailhunting #tradition #oldsouth #mules #englishpointers #quailforever #talltimbers #bobwhitequailinitiative #georgiawildlife

My husband was walking the shore of #lakegillis at #hughmgillispublicfishingarea when he came up on this #raccoon #fishing for #food.  He took this photo with an #iphone5. The raccoon allowed my husband to get close enough to get a great photo.  I assume it is because  it has seen him #feeding the #fish often enough to know he is not a threat.  This same day he also took a photo of an #eagle soaring overhead.  #getoutdoors #georgiawildlife #pfa #wildlifephotography
Stunning woodie drake from today’s rainy hunt! There is good reason why these guys are my favorite duck. I’ve killed many of them but this is by far my prettiest one yet!

Our ambassador screech owls Ellis and Cricket are doing their best to look inconspicuous. #AreYouAWARE that Eastern Screech Owls have two color "morphs," red and grey? Both colors provide excellent camouflage for roosting and nesting in their woodland habitats. "Ear" tufts also help them to blend in with the trees. #lovethewildlife #areyouaware #easternscreechowl #georgiawildlife #owlsofinstagram #camouflage

Feeling like i got a #deer trifecta here. Captured a #buck #doe and a #fawn in one pic. #georgiawildlife
The creek was frozen today but that didn’t stop me and @fly_fishingmaster from putting a hurting on some wintertime bows!

Inside the clear cut (that will be replanted) we left a few pockets of fire tolerant hardwoods. We had to make sure the fire didnt get too hot in these spots to avoid damage to the trees. A clearcut site prep burn can get too hot for these stands if you aren't careful. I lay a little fire down in them before the main wall of fire approaches. We leave tree pockets to provide some heterogenous habitat, and a spot for #hunters to hide or put their tree stands while they hunt the clearcut.

So I tried my hand at a little wildlife photography. It takes a lot of patience. I’m not sure if it’s for me, but more respect for the people who do this type of photography.

Cricket is one of our ambassador Screech Owls. Eastern Screeches come in two color morphs, grey and red. In the wild they dwell in tree cavities, or for Cricket, under a heat lamp 😉

Prescribed #fire day! Site prep burn to prepare this area to be planted in short leaf pine. A native pine that's declined substantially due to fire suppression over the last 200 years. It does well on dry, rocky ridges. We're also planting a little over 1,000 #chestnut hybrids at this site! I also breathed waaaaay too much smoke today.

Brrrr! It's cold outside, but Ellis, our ambassador Eastern Screech Owl, is well-equipped for freezing weather wearing his puffy down coat, which traps body heat and provides insulation against the cold. (And, like our other ambassadors, he has a covered, heated area in his enclosure if he wants to warm up!) #lovethewildlife #areyouaware #wildliferehab #screechowl #easternscreechowl #owlsofinstagram #owlstagram #georgiawildlife

I made a little year end video of my frog stuff. Here is the first minute since IG doesn’t like longer vids. Apologies for the abrupt cutoff.

Sweet backyard babies! 🦌🦌 I try not to get attached to the neighborhood deer after the "broken leg incident" of 2015, but these two babies are too cute to ignore. I'm not naming them though, that's just inviting heartbreak!!! #deer #backyardnature #georgianature #georgiawildlife #backyardanimals
A chickadee doing chickadee things! Funny enough, these are my favorite two photos from the last couple days of almost nonstop birding - I tried to track down winter specialty sparrows at a hotspot for hours this morning to no avail. Got plenty of exercise out of it though! 😂 •

Female downy woodpecker finally trusted me enough to come down and feed on the new suet feeder.  So exciting!  #birdnerd #naturenerd #woodpecker #downywoodpecker #georgiawildlife #wildbirds #naturephotography @sherpasharpe ❤️

Saw this hawk again today. She comes over us on the walks here and again. Her call is what I needed to hear. .

December 23rd and there are still basking turtles out. Amongst many sliders and painted turtles was this snoozy eastern musk turtle (#Sternotherus odoratus). Everyone else was too flighty to have their photo taken... #Georgiawildlife #muskturtle

I've always enjoyed visiting Petty Johns Cave after I spend a day working at Pigeon Mountain. Come see some awesome cave salamanders and the endemic pigeon mountain salamander at a Crockford-Pigeon Wildlife Management Area (they're usually close to the mouth of the cave)! Look, but don't touch! They get enough traffic from cavers already.

My first Indigo Snake (Drymarchon couperi) with the @oriannesociety. These snakes are Federally Threatened and the Orianne Society does so much to help conserve this species!
