During a rare day off, I combined a little mountain biking with a visit to Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge.
I’d heard amazing stories about the wildlife on this island near Hilton Head. And althrough I was only there for about an hour, the stories proved very true! One particular location, appropriately named Ibis Pond, is a rookery for white ibis and other wading birds. It was great to see such a thriving, natural habitat, in spite of its close proximity to the densely populated resort town next door!
