While it's true that spring is the best time to watch the most colorful migratory birds in South Georgia backyards, the dead of winter can also bring some satisfying birding with inviting feeders and a little patience.

This Halloween, the Center for Addiction Recovery at Georgia Southern University brought back the Haunted Forest for another year of spooky fun.
