The easy one is the Snowy Egrets, look at the attitude. There are also Black-necked Stilts, Yellowlegs, and a Willett.

This spot has always been a marsh, though some parts were plantation rice fields. Later it was a large private reserve for a wealthy northern industrialist, and finally part of the Lowcountry state wildlife management areas.
