January 3-6 Ellijay Georgia Property We arrived the evening of the third at our next airbnb in the mountains of North Georgia. The first thing we noticed was all of the land that was part of the property. The house was huge. After we explored the house, we went on a walk around the property. The next morning, after my mom got the groceries, we went walking again and this time, there were cattle out on the farm across the stream! My sister and I found some grass for them, but they weren’t interested in us. When we came back, I noticed that there were at least ten Eastern Bluebirds in the bushes! We had basically won the “Bluebird Lottery.” I also spotted some Northern Cardinals and an Eastern Phoebe on the hot tub cover! We also saw twelve Turkey Vultures circling above our house. We constantly heard Carolina Wrens in our yard, and also heard a White Throated Sparrow responding to my calls.
