I lived in Greer, South Carolina (between Greenville & Spartanburg) a few years ago before I was a birder. What a great place! I do miss it.

Thanks for the note! It's been pretty pleasant here but suppose to get cold tomorrow. We're heading up to Myrtle Beach for a few days on Sunday. Hope to do a bit more birding as time permits. Nice to have an Anhinga in the subdivision pond behind my brother's house here!
