SIB wants to make you aware of an opportunity to take a boat trip to Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge through Coastal Expeditions, on Sunday February 4, 2018, 8:00 am – 12 noon. As of now there are still 25 seats available and the cost is $45/person. SIB is not sponsoring this event, but there are several SIB members already signed up. See description and website below for more information.
As the weather cools and the northerly winds start to blow, birding in the Lowcountry blossoms. Join Coastal Expeditions on a guided birding trip through the estuaries to the northern end of the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge in search of migrating shorebirds, songbirds, and birds of prey.
We’ll take you to the hidden spots where long-billed curlew can be found for a chance to see this life list-worthy bird in its native habitat. While we are out, expect to see other extraordinary avian species like peregrine falcons, marbled godwits, whimbrels, marsh wrens and seaside sparrows.
Throughout the year, 293 bird species are classified within Cape Romain, and many of them are seen during the fall migration along the Atlantic Flyway.
This is going to be a very special opportunity for birding in Cape Romain. With close-up views of the historic lighthouses and unmatched scenery, this trip is perfect for photographers, birders, nature-lovers and history buffs. This excursion will take place on board Caretta (We will not be departing onto any islands). SPACE IS LIMITED
