This is the Georgia Rare Bird Alert for Sunday evening, October 15, 2000,
Jeff Sewell reporting.
Gene Keferl reports a fantastic observation of a flock of FULVOUS
WHISTLING-DUCKS on the wing over the Jekyll Island Causeway. They were seen
around 8:15 AM 1/2 mile from US 17 over the causeway heading south. Several
efforts by coastal birders to relocate the birds failed later in the day.
Gene also reports running across a couple of birders from Colorado who
reported seeing a THAYER'S GULL on Jekyll's South Beach. Birders failed to
relocate that bird as well.
Yesterday Bob Zaremba and others reported 5 CLAY-COLORED SPARROWS at the
Altamaha State Waterfowl Management Area south of Darien, out on the dykes.
This of course is on the east side or the ocean side of US 17.
From the Atlanta area Bill Ellry reports a LINCOLN'S SPARROW and a
WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW from the Buford Fish Hatchery, between Cumming and
Buford off GA 20 at the Chattahoochee River. A NASHVILLE WARBLER was also

The 3 LINCOLN'S SPARROWS reported from Saturday morning's AAS bird walk at
