Spring and summer are when most people seek to get outdoors, but I actually prefer winter in the Lowcountry, particularly if my aim is one of my chief hobbies, photographing birds. In the winter, there are no bugs to battle, flattering light and little foliage to block the view of your subject.

This week's gallery comes to us almost entirely from reader Karen Marts of Hilton Head Island, who sends photos of birds around Shelter Cove Park. She is concerned that noise from construction there is making life hard on her feathered friends. She notes birds use their hearing in 3 major ways: to detect predators, to locate food, and to identify members of their flock, as well as other bird species. If you would like to submit photos for a future Untamed Lowcountry Gallery, email your jpeg images to Managing Editor Jeff Kidd at email@example.com. You must own the rights to your images and grant permission for The Island Packet and The Beaufort Gaze

There weren't many submissions for this week's gallery, but given the spectacular turkey shot, we weren't going sit on these until after Thanksgiving. Happy holiday, everyone. If you would like to submit photos for publication in a future Untamed Lowcountry gallery, email your jpeg image to Managing Editor Jeff Kidd at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must own rights to your the photo you submit and agree to allow us to publish it.

From the beach on this seven-mile-long natural landmark, U.S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell stared carefully at the eerie landscape of fallen and broken trees.
