During the month of June, Seabrook Island Birders (SIB) will once again offer a variety of programs for you to participate in, both in person, as well as a movie which you can easily watch from anywhere via Zoom. Each of the “bird walks” require walking only short distances, with one done mostly by car, another by golf cart, and the third from the back deck of a generous SIB member. Click each link to learn more and sign up.

These are the ratites: the ostrich, emu, rhea, kiwi and cassowary. How and why these birds abandoned flight has puzzled scientists since Darwin’s time, but DNA and dedicated research are helping to solve these mysteries.
