Birding on Ocean Winds Golf Course
Date: Sunday June 28, 2020 8:30 am – 10:30 am
Location: Meet at Island House (Golf Course Parking Lot next to Spinnaker Beach Houses) for ride along the golf course in golf carts
Max: 24 (If all seats in golf carts are used)
Cost: Free for members; $5 donation for guests – Priority will be given to members
Ocean Winds golf course is closed for major renovations, but Seabrook Island Birders has obtained permission from Seabrook Island Club and the Golf Club Operations to take a group of members out on the front nine to bird and visit the rookery. We will ride in golf carts (1 4-person and 10 2-person carts) which can accommodate 13 – 24 people, based on the number of people who will share carts.
We expect to see a large variety of birds including Double-crested Cormorants, Egrets, Herons, Bald Eagles and other birds of prey. We should also see and hear some of the smaller birds like Tufted Titmice, Eastern Bluebirds, Northern Cardinals and some of the many warbler species. Maybe Great Crested Flycatchers, Mississippi Kites, and Eastern Kingbirds.
To keep everyone safe, we will ask people to social distance and wear a face mask. When you register, if you are not joined by a family member, please let us know if you are open to riding with a non-family participant or if you prefer to be in a cart alone.
As always, be sure to bring your binoculars, hats and sunscreen. Water will be provided.
If you are not yet a 2020 SIB member, you must first become a member for only $10 by following the instructions on our website: http://seabrookislandbirders.org/contact/join-sib/. Or you may pay the Guest Fee of $5.
Please register no later than Friday June 26, 2020. All registrants will receive a confirmation letter on Saturday June 27, 2020. If you need to cancel, please let us know so we can invite people on the waitlist to attend.
