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.

Scott Weidensaul, A World on the Wing: The Global Odyssey of Migratory Birds 

Tuesday, February 14, 2023 at 4:00 pm 
Location: Zoom Only

Watch the replay of the Zoom event featuring Scott Weidensaul, a renowned bird migration expert, and author of more than two dozen books on natural history. These include New York Times bestseller “A World on the Wing,” and Pulitzer Prize finalist “Living on the Wind.” He’s a contributing editor for Audubon and is a Fellow of the American Ornithological Society. An active field researcher, his studies of migration have taken him all around the world. 

 
Even as scientists make astounding discoveries about the navigational and physiological feats that enable migratory birds to cross immense oceans or fly above the highest mountains, go weeks without sleep or remain in unbroken flight for months at a stretch, humans have brought many migrants to the brink. Based on his newest book “A World on the Wing,” author and researcher Scott Weidensaul takes you around the globe — with researchers in the lab probing the limits of what migrating birds can do, to the shores of the Yellow Sea in China, the remote mountains of northeastern India where tribal villages saved the greatest gathering of falcons on the planet, and the Mediterranean, where activists and police are battling bird poachers — to learn how people are fighting to understand and save the world’s great bird migrations.
