The Lowcountry is known as one of the biggest and best wild bird areas in the country. Even here though finding a gathering like this is special. Something you see only a few times a year.
These photographs capture a small piece of the different flocks.
When the water levels are just right all the different species come together to feed.
When the water rises, or food is depleted, they will move to other areas around the marshes. Unfortunately for us most of the locations are inaccessible. Of course this is exactly why the animals come here in the first place.
