Sweetwater Creek State Park, Lithia Springs, Georgia

We went to Atlanta to visit family. We had time one day to drop by Sweetwater Creek State Park. Our target bird was the brown-headed nuthatch, a bird we only learned about the morning of our outing. It's distinctive call made it easy to locate but it took a while to get some good views and photos.

After birding, we had great chicken and biscuits with a delicious remoulade sauce at the nearby Milk & Honey restaurant.
