Learning Together – Bike and Bird to Mingo Point
Location: Meet at Lakehouse parking lot
Cost None for members; $5 donation for guests
Meet at 8am at the Lakehouse to bike from Seabrook Island’s Lake House through Freshfields to Mingo Point on Kiawah. Those not wishing to bike can choose to meet the bikers about an hour later at Mingo Point. The path is paved and borders wooded areas, marsh and fields. Along the way, we pass the Equestrian Center where we can expect to see European Starlings, Eastern Bluebirds and possibly Cattle Egrets. Further along we will see and hear various songbirds. Of course as we bike through Freshfields, we will see the resident Black Vultures and Boattail Grackles. Beyond Freshfields, we may see Roseatte Spoonbills and other wading and shorebirds.
At Mingo Point, we’ll meet at the Kiawah parking lot to bird by the Kayak Ramp. There are many bird feeders placed to see feeder birds and we are also at the Ramp right on the Kiawah River to enjoy shorebirds too. There are plenty of places to sit and bird or we can go for a stroll in the area for even more birds. Painted Buntings, House Finch and Carolina Chickadees are almost be a sure thing!! Sometimes the Naturalist that mans the Hut, is free to help us search.
Be sure to bring binoculars, camera, hats, sunscreen, bug repellant, snacks and water.
