Birding Activities

Birding on the Golf Course during Covid-19

Meet new and “old” friends while learning about the birds of our island and South Carolina by joining us on a bird walk.  Walks are generally 1 1/2 – 3 hours in length with various degrees of walking.  In some cases, we bird by driving our cars and stopping (like on Jenkins Point and Bear Island WMA).  In other cases, we use golf carts on the golf course so it is accessible for all.

Always remember to bring water, sunscreen, bug repellent, hat and if you have them binoculars and/or a camera. Please practice safe distancing and wear masks.

Movie Matinees

Movie Matinee | The Spinal Column

It is a new year and we still need to social distance. Seabrook Island Birders (SIB) will schedule a “Virtual Movie Matinee” series using Zoom on the second Tuesday of each month. 

If you would like to join us for a Seabrook Island Birder’s “Virtual Movie Matinees” you must REGISTER to attend. Then we will email you the Zoom link the day prior to the event. We will open each event with introductions and a little social time, watch the  show together (generally an hour), and finish with a short discussion to get your feedback and answer questions. Sign up  then plan to get comfy in your favorite chair with snacks and beverages of your choice to enjoy our gathering!

Big Birds Can’t Fly

Big Birds Can't Fly | School Library JournalIt may seem strange that among the more than 10,000 bird species in the world today is a group that literally cannot fly or sing, and whose wings are more fluff than feather. These are the ratites: the ostrich, emu, rhea, kiwi and cassowary. How and why these birds abandoned flight has puzzled scientists since Darwin’s time, but DNA and dedicated research are helping to solve these mysteries.

You are invited to a Zoom meeting. 
When: Jun 8, 2021 04:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

David Allen Sibley – “What It’s Like To Be A Bird”

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is das.jpegA birder since childhood, Sibley is an ornithologist and the award-winning author and illustrator of perhaps the most comprehensive avian field guide available, The Sibley Guide to Birds. His new book, geared for novice and younger birders as well as more experienced naturalists, is a beautiful large-format volume that focuses on more than 200 species, ranging from familiar backyard visitors like blue jays, nuthatches, and chickadees, to seashore favorites such as the Atlantic puffin. In each entry Sibley answers frequently asked questions, presents details about behavior that have not previously been gathered in one place, and provides precise, colorful drawings—some reproduced in life size—of birds in action.
