With the heat of the summer and the need to still social distance, Seabrook Island Birders (SIB) has scheduled a “Virtual Movie Matinee” series using Zoom! Join us on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays in July and August! And the best part is you don’t even have to be on Seabrook Island to join!
Once you register, we will send you a link the day prior to each event to allow you to access our Zoom live video. We will open each event with introductions and a little social time, watch the show together (generally an hour), and finish with a short discussion to get your feedback and answer questions.
Sign up for one, two, three or all four here and then plan to get comfy in your favorite chair with snacks and beverages of your choice to enjoy our gathering!
Join us for Beak & Brain – Genius Birds from Down Under on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at 4:00 – 5:30 pm
The Keas of New Zealand are the only parrots that live in snowy mountain areas. They like testing their brains, solving puzzles and challenging tourists: they unscrew bottle-tops, dismantle windscreen wiper blades and tear open rucksacks.

Join us for Peregrine Falcon Lord of the Skies on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at 4:00 – 5:30 pm
While hunting, the Peregrine Falcon can reach speeds of over 90 miles per hour. During its aerial displays, it holds the all-time speed record of 242 miles per hour. It’s not surprising that this powerful bird of prey has conquered the planet and can be found on the five continents. Worshipped, dressed up and trained for prestigious hunts, this powerful and beautiful bird has long fascinated us.
Join us for The Saga of the White Tailed Eagle on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at 4:00 – 5:30 pm
The sea eagle was once widespread throughout almost all of Europe and graced the coats of arms of many different countries. During the 19th and 20th centuries it was driven to the brink of extinction by hunting, the increased use of pesticides and the destruction of its habitat. This touching animal drama recounts the true life story of one individual bird, observed over the course of a year. Beginning with its birth in a lowland forest in Central Europe the film team follows the eagle’s first outing with its brothers and sisters and subsequent distant migrations to places as far away as Scandinavia. Finally it chronicles its dramatic lead poisoning, recovery and resettlement in a nature reserve.
Join us for Owl’s Odyssey on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at 4:00 – 5:30 pm
A female barn-owl’s home is demolished and she seeks a new place to live. Flying through forests and grasslands, she meets common owl species in Central Europe, some she can co-exist with, others she must shun. This documentary is a beautiful display of what owls mean to humans; how they fly and hunt; why they’ve been associated with death. The owl finally finds a new home, as the guest of a barn owl family, in time to see the new clutch of young following their mother on their first majestic flight.
