Watch a wild Savannah Great Horned Owl on The Landings Owl Cam, Skidaway Is.

Sunday, January 24th, 2016

Great Horned Owl Cam Savannah The Landings Skidaway Island

So it begins again.

The Savannah mama owl is back.

Watch the Savannah Great Horned Owl mom on Skidaway Island LIVE via The Landings Bird Cam video feed.

The owl showed up at the nest this weekend and laid an egg on Jan. 23 and a second egg on Jan. 26. Incubation is 30-37 days.

Visit  The Landings Bird Cam or The Cornell Lab of Ornithology to see live 24/7 video with audio of what is happening in the abandoned eagle’s nest that is atop a pine tree in The Landings.

The streaming video is made possible thanks to a partnership with Cornell University Lab of Ornithology. The video feed can also be seen on the Georgia DNR site http://www.georgiawildlife.com/cams

The cameras have infrared capability, enabling nighttime viewing without disrupting the owls, according to the Savannah Owl Cam @ The Landings web site. Read more here about the owls & how this bald eagle’s nest in The Landings became an owl’s nest.

Follow the owls on Twitter at SavannahOwls and on Facebook here. 

The Landings Bird Cam site also has a link to this fun, kids’ The Owl Song by The Whizpops. Click here & watch your kids hoot along.

Savannah kids can become a Junior Ranger this holiday season

Monday, December 21st, 2015

Junior Ranger programs at National Parks in Savannah, CharlestonThis holiday season, take advantage of the fact that we live within a day’s drive of multiple national parks & monuments & have your kids become a junior ranger at one or many of these sites.

When you take kids to tour national parks, you never know how much they are getting out of the visit. Especially for those of us moms who aren’t exactly history experts.

Which is why you need to pick up the Junior Ranger booklets at the visitor centers of national parks you visit. The Junior Ranger program kids engage more during the visits.

Junior Ranger booklets have activities about the national parks for ages 5-12. Junior ranger books are free to any visitor and usually are available at the visitors’ centers. Often, similar programs with more advanced activities are also available for older kids. Just ask at the site’s visitor center.

While doing the activities, children enjoy earning a badge and a certificate.

Nearby national parks/monuments that have Junior Ranger programs include:
*Fort Pulaski National Monument, on U.S. 80 en route to Tybee Island. Info on the Fort Pulaski Junior Program here.
*Fort Sumter & Fort Moultrie national monuments, Charleston, S.C. Info on these forts Junior Ranger program here.
*Cumberland Island National Seashore, Ga. More info here.
*Fort Frederica National Monument on St. Simons Island. Info on the Fort Frederica National Monument Junior Ranger Program here.
*Ocmulgee National Monument in Macon. Info on Ocmulgee’s National Monument Junior Ranger Program here.
* Congaree National Park near Columbia. Info on Junior Ranger Program here.
