Moving Through A Swamp

The Great Blue flew by, right down the center of the swamp.

Looking at Google Maps I found a large stream, more swamp, and finally an open pond past our usual trail. This explains why the Eagle passes that way too.

I don’t see a way to get there without walking through some deep swamp… not happening.

The old Drayton Plantation is a few miles over there. Maybe an exploration day this summer to look for a back way.

This male was heading in the direction I expected, right towards the edge where swamp meets forest.

Once they reach the forest side all we can do is wait to see if he returns the same way. Most do, but others miraculously come back from a totally different direction.
