Savannah – Yesterday and today, I visited the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge’s Laurel Hill Wildlife Drive for the first time in a bit over a month. Yesterday’s trip was a morning trip and today’s was an evening trip with 30 Alligators seen on Wednesday and 13 seen today. Wednesday’s trip also included some Purple Gallinule and Marsh Rabbit sightings with young Common Gallinule chicks seen both days.
