Join SIB: Learning Together at Palmetto Lake

Wednesday, March 08, 2023-4:00pm -6:00pm
Location:  Meet at Equestrian end of Lake House  parking lot
Max:  15
Cost: Free for 2023 members, $10 for guests

Description:   Join the Seabrook Island Birders for a leisurely walk around 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 navigable and for those walking it will be less than a half a mile.  As we walk along Seabrook Island Road, we hope to see some of our resident winter warblers (an maybe some early arriving spring warblers) such as Yellow-rumped Warblers, Palm Warblers 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.  Hooded Mergansers, Pie-billed Grebes and Buffleheads may be seen swimming in the lake.

Dress in layers and bring your binoculars, hats, and a beverage of choice.  You may also wish to bring a chair to sit and enjoy your beverage while watching the birds coming in for their evening roost. Sunset is 6:22 so timing will hopefully be good before the coming time change.

If you are not yet a 2023 SIB member, you must first become a member for only $15 by following the instructions on our website: You may bring the form and your dues to the event. Or you may pay the Guest Fee of $10.

Please register no later than Monday March 6.  All registrants will receive a confirmation letter on the Tuesday, the day prior to the activity.
