best locations for birding, particularly shorebirding, on the Georgia Coast.

and sandbars that are attractive as feeding areas for shorebirds. Little
St. Simons Island is part of the Altamaha River Delta WHSRN Site and Important
Bird Area. Be sure to attend the Spring Birding Week, April 4-12, 2003!
