Seabrook Island Birders and the Seabrook Island Youth Group will be observing Global Big Day on May 8 with a leisurely walk around Palmetto Lake. Beginners and experienced birders are welcome. We can teach you birding and how to use binoculars. Unfortunately, in today’s environment, you must provide your own binoculars. Spring Migration will be nearing completion, but summer residents should be here. We will see our usual songbirds and shorebirds. We will look to the skies for hawks and bald eagles too. We will have plenty of light left for our stroll. We will break into two groups going in different directions around the lake if the number of registrants warrant. Dress in layers, wear sturdy shoes and bring sun block, bug spray, a hat, water, binoculars and/or a camera.

Global Big Day is an annual celebration of the birds around you. No matter where you are, join us virtually on May 8, and share the birds you find with eBird.org. Participating is easy—you can even be part of Global Big Day from home. If you can spare 5 or 10 minutes, report your bird observations to eBird online or with Cornell’s free eBird Mobile app. If you have more time, submit checklists of birds throughout the day.
