This morning a Merlin was seen in a tall tree opposite side of cove from boat ramp at SCP being harassed by 7 BLJA! Also, on the boat ramp was a Spotted Sandpiper.

Did not relocate the bird this morning. But the general activity was good, link to eBird list below.

Interesting sighting John Mark. The timing is good for that species. The only other record for the species at Bear Creek Reservoir (originally found by Joel McNeal) was March 4-6 2011.

I've been watching a great candidate for Red-necked Grebe at bear creek reservoir since about 2:40. The bird has evaded me but it was visible very far out from the public park fishing area. I attempted digi scoped shots of it but the heat shimmer distorts it too much. I'll check again tomorrow most likely but whoever has a better scope should look for this bird. I saw three common loons, one red breasted merganser, and a few diving ducks.

Seen yesterday evening February 13th in the recently filled Pond on the west side of Cole Spring Road near Hog Mountain Road in Oconee county. In addition to the continuing Ringneck ducks and Redheads, at least two CANVASBACKs were observed. Not sure if they’re still there today but you might want to have a look.

Those ponds are all next door in Oconee County. If you click here you can look at my most recent checklists and go to the "(Map)" link at the top of each list next to the location name. Another good spot is the Apalachee Rd. Farm Pond near Bostwick.

Hey there,

Yes we can help! One good way is to use ebird.org. When you go there go to the explore data page then explore hotspots. When you search those the point will come up on a map. As for Wilke's pond since it is not a hotspot find someone's recent checklist from there and it always has a google maps link attached.

I am new to Athens (I just moved here from Atlanta) and my wife and I are avid birders. Would anyone mind helping know where Parker Creek pond, Wilkes Pond and Astondale pond are?
