The Coastal Discovery Museum has announced a Winter bird watching program at Pinckney Island led by experienced bird watchers from the Museum, starting February 7. The walk will include the combination of habitats at Pinckney Island Wildlife Refuge. These varying areas allow participants to see many different species of birds. Several species of shore birds can usually be seen in the mud flats in the salt marsh, while many species of wading birds could potentially be seen around the marsh and fresh water lagoons. Future walks will be held every Wednesday through December.
The outing is from 7:30-9:30 am and space is limited to 15 (ages 12 and older). Participants are asked to bring their own binoculars and the program will be canceled in case of rain. The program is $12.00 per person and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext 223.
