Possible late record

I think this November has been one of the warmest on record for Georgia.

Your 27 Nov date may be the new "late" date for Georgia supported by a photograph. The previous late dates in Georgia were 22 Nov 2017 in Camden Co., and 23 Nov (unk. yr.) in Chatham Co.

This year, White Peacock were seen and photographed on the coast of Georgia during late October (and probably early November.) White Peacock have been seen in Georgia in the months of May-November. (They fly year-round in Florida - Which is where I photographed them this year.)

After this latest cold weather, I am doubtful of any more records this year in Georgia. White Peacock lack cold tolerance.

Also, thanks for putting Georgia on the map for BG.
