Phinizy Swamp Nature Park Day Hike, March 29, 2024

Phinzy Swamp Nature Park in Augusta (Richmond County) Georgia, is probably the closest habitat for wading birds and alligators I can get to on a day trip. I like making a trip to Phinizy to get my fix on alligators and wading birds that I can't photograph where I live in the Piedmont. There are always plenty of photo opportunities in just a few short hours of walking at Phinizy Swamp!
