<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Georgia's counties, including Effingham, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Birds - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Birds) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Birds. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.3407, Longitude: -81.2440       In this case, the coordinates for Birds have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
