The first video is about a neat encounter Beverly Donald and I had with a Barred Owl on a trail within the Hollings sanctuary:
The Hollings NWR is one of several ACE Basin sites that are within an hour's drive of Charleston. If you are looking for a neat day or half-day trip, wanting to truly get away from it all, check out the ACE Basin wildlife areas. The Charleston area beaches are great and close by, but there truly is a whole nother world out there on the edge of our familiar civilization.
Click here to view a pictorial I did about the Hollings NWR a couple years ago. It's on my book/photography website called BirdsEyeViews.
Donnelley and Bear Island are two other S.C. Wildlife Management Areas, also in ACE Basin. I have visited each several times and always enjoying taking photographs and video at these wonderful places. Click on the locations to see some of the sites!
