Birding Activities

Birding on the Golf Course during Covid-19

Meet new and “old” friends while learning about the birds on 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

Seabrook Island Birders (SIB) has scheduled a Movie Matinee on the second Tuesday of each month. 

During the second half of 2021, we are returning to some in-person events, alternating between in-person and Zoom. The in-person movies will be held at the Oystercatcher Community Center and will feature movies closer to 1 1/2 – 2 hours in length in August, October & December. The remaining months (July, September & November) will remain as “Virtual Movies” using Zoom for programs lasting just under an hour.

Please register for each event you would like to attend and you will receive confirmation with the appropriate instructions the day prior.

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.
