Backyard Birding at Palmetto Lake
Location: Meet at the Gatehouse end of Lakehouse Parking Lot
Cost: Free for members; $5 donation for guests
Join SIB to officially say good-bye to Summer as Fall starts on September 22. The recent resurgence of COVID had made many uncomfortable meeting at someone’s home. Therefore we’ll bird in the Lakehouse’s backyard….Palmetto Lake. We plan to walk part way along the path towards the Equestrian Center then hopefully see the “white birds” come in to roost for the evening. The path around Palmetto Lake is wheelchair navigatable and for those walking it will be probably only a quarter of a mile. As we walk along Seabrook Island Road, we hope to see some of our fall warblers such as American Redstart, Yellow Warbler and my favorite Black and White Warbler. We also expect to see a large variety of birds including Northern Cardinals, Carolina Wrens, Herons and birds of prey. If the “white birds” get the invitation, we hope to see Snowy Egrets, Great Egrets and White Ibis roosting for the evening.
As always, be sure to bring your binoculars/cameras, hats and sunscreen. Bug repellent may also be appropriate. Bring your drink of choice to enjoy as the sun sets at 7:18. We ask that all participants wear a mask when unable to social distance if they are not vaccinated.
