About this trip

August is a great time to find migrating shorebirds on the beautiful South Carolina coast! We’ll begin our tour in Beaufort, SC and spend out first full day at Harbor Island where we will search the intertidal flats, tidal creeks, and beachfront for up to 18 species of shorebirds, including Red Knot and Piping Plover. Painted Buntings and Reddish Egrets will be likely too. On our way toward Charleston we will check tidal impoundments for shorebirds such as Stilt Sandpiper and Black-necked Stilt. In this area over 20 species of shorebirds can be observed and specialties such as Ruff, Wilson’s Phalarope, and American Golden Plover have been observed here in August. We will also get a chance to see most of the local gulls, terns, and wading birds. Another highlight of this trip will be a visit to Santee Coastal Reserve WMA, where over 31 shorebird species have been found in its thousands of acres of managed wetlands. Other specialties here include Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Bachman’s Sparrow, and other mature pine forest birds.

What a beautiful day we had birding with Keith! Always enjoy his outings. Was well organized with several pre-planned stops along the way to see several varieties of warblers migrating through. The lake was a bit high to see mass quantities of shorebirds, but Keith still made it fun pointing out several cool birds and taking us on a beautiful hike to the end of the road.

After a bit of a wait for the fog to lift we saw a lot of birds. Most common warbler was Tennessee, estimated at over 100. Great guide in Aaron and Simon.

Very productive trip. Great guide, warblers are his passion. Kevin is considerate, pays attention to details, makes sure you see the bird , identifies calls and works to obtain your target birds. Well organized, considering dealing with Covid and restaurants etc. never in an uncomfortable situation. Have booked additional trips with Kevin

The birding and guide were outstanding. We would have appreciated more thought/planning on meals.
