Martin Sullivan raised thousands more dollars in early 2014 than his opponent in the upcoming Republican primary for the Georgia House of Representatives District 166 seat, but he remains far behind Jesse Petrea in both total funds raised and cash on hand as the election nears.
Sullivan reported raising $10,351 in the first quarter of 2014; Petrea reported $7,450 raised.
District 166, which spans most of the islands in eastern Chatham County and the easternmost portions of Bryan County, is the only contested election among Chatham seats in the May 20 primary.
Peter Range banded his first bird, an evening grosbeak, when he was just a kid in eastern Tennessee. The feisty finch put its mark on him, too.
“Some birds peck,” he said. “An evening grosbeak grabs the skin and takes a divot out of it.”
Still, Range was hooked on banding when he discovered one of the grosbeaks he recaptured in 1968 had been banded six years before in Lincoln, Maine.
On Tuesday morning, more than 45,000 banded birds later, Range demonstrated his technique to interested birders at the Visitors’ Center of the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge.
Just prior to the demo, Range and several volunteers caught a half dozen birds in mist nets in the nearby woods and held them in mesh produce bags to await their tags.
First up was a hooded warbler, a local nester that comes back to the area in the spring.
