Invitation to shorebird zoom talk on Red Knots 

Our friends on the Kiawah Island Shorebird Stewardship Program have shared the following invitation:

You are invited to the third of four shorebird Zoom talks being hosted by the Kiawah Island Shorebird Stewardship Program.  It will be on Wednesday, June 8th at 6:00 p.m.

This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the amazing lives of our beloved Red Knots.  We all know they visit our island every Spring, but this presentation will tell us about what we have learned from ongoing research on them.

The presenter for this talk will be Fletcher Smith of the Georgia Dept. of Natural Resources.

Title:  Red Knot Research in the Southeast


Fletcher Smith is a shorebird biologist who has worked with migrating birds for over 17 years.  Red Knots have greatly declined in the last 50 years, but what is being done to understand more about why?  He will share interesting findings from a long-term Red Knot project of counting, surveying, trapping, and banding them.  He will also share what’s been learned about the Knots from this past season.  Learn how Kiawah and Seabrook are critical to the survival of this species!

Note: The link for the recording on this and the two previous programs will be shared when available.
