The Piping Plovers are back and there is a good chance to see more Shorebirds. SIB member Arch McCallum will lead a SIB Learning Together bird walk at North Beach. Arch was a professor of Ornithology at College of Charleston and also leads bird walks for Audubon of South Carolina. He’s never birded Seabrook’s beaches so it will be a learning experience for all. Overall, we hope to spot a nice variety of shorebirds as we work our way to the North Beach inlet. We’ll meet in the Property Owners’ beach parking lot at 5:00 pm. This will get us to the beach shortly after high tide which brings the shorebirds closer to the shore. The day should be getting cooler with hopefully a nice evening breeze. Be sure to bring binoculars, camera, hats, sunscreen, water, and snacks. Of course, you can head back at any time.
