Backyard birding is a hobby enjoyed by tens of millions of Americans. In fact, when the more serious birders are asked how they got involved in the hobby, nearly every one says it started by watching the birds in their yard as either a child or an adult. Here on Seabrook Island, we have the perfect habitat for birds to enjoy our yards and we want to make sure everyone who wants can enjoy this wonderful hobby! If you like, it can be done year round by people of all abilities!
During our program, we will talk about the various types of food and feeders loved by our common backyard birds on Seabrook Island. We will then help you identify these common birds, including showing photos of varying plumage, what time of year they reside on our island, what they eat, where they are commonly seen if not in your backyard and other interesting tidbits. At the end of the program, you may even decide you are ready become a citizen scientist and sign up to participate in Project FeederWatch, a program run by Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Bird Studies Canada.
