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.

Very helpful. I've always been terrible identifying sparrows. This presentation offered a logical way to think about the similarities and differences. Looking forward to trying it out on some live examples.

Very informative talk, also entertaining. I especially appreciated the comparisons between similar species.

This was a fun way to become familiar with the guides, the participants, and the way Ventures domestic trips are run. Of course the photos of birds were especially appreciated. Certainly makes me want to join a trip - though not in the cold climates!

Great trip! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and organized. He had a plan for each day and stuck to it. He kept us informed of where we were going, what to expect and what to look for. I certainly appreciated that he was a safe driver. Accommodations were very nice and very clean, big points there. Wonderful group of interesting travel mates and I hope to see them again on other trips!
