Have a Holly, Jolly Christmas

Monday morning was the Christmas Bird Count.  This is a yearly event that is the world's largest volunteer project. I was the captain of my team looking for birds on the back nine holes of the Okatie golf course. We woke up to cloudy skies and expected thunderstorms. Luckily the weather turned sunny and pleasant. We saw lots of birds and here are a few favorites. On the way in my golf cart at 7:00 am I saw this majestic deer posing at the far end of a nearby lagoon.

Not a bird - Fox Squirrel
