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.

Movie Matinees

Movie Matinee | The Spinal Column

Fall has arrived (at least on some days) and with the need to still social distance, Seabrook Island Birders (SIB) has scheduled a “Virtual Movie Matinee” series using Zoom!  Join us on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month!  And the best part is you don’t even have to be on Seabrook Island to join! If you would like to join us for any of 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 for one, two, three or all four then plan to get comfy in your favorite chair with snacks and beverages of your choice to enjoy our gathering!

Earthflight is a British nature documentary that shows a flight from the view of the wings of birds across six continents, showing some of the world’s greatest natural spectacles from a bird’s-eye view. The BBC series was created by John Downer and narrated by David Tennant with six episodes. We will show two each month for the remainder of the year.
