We gobbled till we wobbled at the first annual Seabrook Island Birders (SIB) Let’s Talk Turkey & Eat Some Too event on Wednesday November 16, 2016. What a fabulous evening we all had! Over 65 people enjoyed turkey, gravy, ham and wine supplied by the SIB team and also loved the many appetizers, sides and desserts provided by the guests. The tables were beautifully decorated and all glowed with lovely tea lights. After dinner, Jay Cantrell, a game biologist with SC-DNR, provided a presentation concerning the Wild Turkey and its natural history, historical and present day management, population fluctuations and other interesting facts. Who knew there are five sub-species of Wild Turkey in the United States. The evening ended with seven SIB members winning various door prizes, including binoculars, books, framed photograph and a $50 gift card. The SIB Executive Board would like to thank Jay Cantrell and all the SIB members who made this night such a memorable event.
What a fabulous way to enjoy a great meal, meet friends, make new friends and learn about the variety of birds we enjoy here on Seabrook Island all for a $10 annual membership.
