Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:
Jekyll Island

31.11 N   81.46 W
This resort destination has done a wonderful job of preserving natural areas. The south end of the island is probably the "birdiest". The island has 20 miles of jogging trails that take you through good birding habitat.

Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park
33.91 N   84.61 W
The mile-long road to the top of the "mountain" should yield about 20 warbler species in late April.  On weekends, you can ride a shuttle bus to the top. Good trails cover most of this park located about 20 miles northwest of Atlanta.

Okefenokee Swamp
30.79 N   82.00 W
This huge wetlands area is on the Georgia/Florida border. Look for specialties like Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Brown-headed Nuthatch and Bachman's Sparrow.
