Mother-Daughter Time


Wood stork (top) and Ibis (bottom)

What better time to bond with your teenager than spring? After my Creative Photography class, I stopped by the house  to get my 13-year-old and forced her to put down the video games. I pried the guitar controller from her hands, grabbed some sports drinks and snacks and headed south to Harris Neck Wildlife Refuge. The plan was to see and photograph the nesting wood storks (rather infamous birds locally because they are a federally endangered species) as well as the white ibis,  before their nesting habitat is closed to humans.

The refuge is about an hour south and is one of seven administered as part of the Savannah Coastal Refuges Complex. I regularly visit the Savannah Wildlife Refuge across the Savannah River but have not been to Harris Neck in about two decades. It is known for its wood stork and painted bunting populations.
