Meet the Speakers:

Aija and Ed Konrad, Seabrook Island Birders

Aija and Ed have been birding at Seabrook for 12 years. Aija is the avid birdwatcher, and Ed is the photographer. You may have seen them at North Beach or around Palmetto Lake, the tall blonde with binoculars and the guy with the big lens camera. They’ve been SIB members and advocates for protecting our shorebirds for many years, and Ed serves on the board. We enjoy Aija’s birding articles and view Ed’s photos each month on the Seabrooker SIB page, along with their many articles on SIB’s website.

In the last decade they’ve traveled extensively to bird and shoot photos in 49 US states and Canada, Central and South America, Europe, and the Far East. In 2018, Aija did a US Big Year, and they crisscrossed the country to see how many bird species they could identify in a calendar year. They recorded 577 species, and Aija placed #15 on eBird’s Lower 48 states! In 2019 they spent a month following and birding the Lewis and Clark Trail to the Pacific.

Aija and Ed are Penn State graduates. They live in Atlanta full time and Seabrook Island about 7 days a month. They have 2 children and 4 grandchildren.
