The Red Knots Are Here!

Join us for Seabrook Island Birders (SIB) / Audubon Red Knot Training.

The Red Knots are on our North Beach shore in growing numbers, as they refuel and rest as a part of their incredible migration from Patagonia to breeding grounds in the Arctic. By mid-April thousands of Red Knots will be on our beach, as they begin to turn their beautiful reddish breeding color.

If you’re interested in becoming better informed on the Red Knot, SIB has scheduled a two-hour training session on Tuesday, March 28, 10:00 am to Noon, at the Oyster Catcher Community Center. This program is free for all who attend.

To enroll in this interesting, informative, and important program, please click here:  REGISTER NOW

In addition, there is a birding walk on North Beach scheduled on Wednesday, March 29 from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm if you would like to view the Red Knots (hopefully!) the morning after the training. Please also sign up for the walk now! (Please note you can attend one or the other or both!)

To register for the walk as well as more information about SIB, visit us at SeabrookIslandBirders.org .
