Spring is one of the most exciting times of the year for birdwatching in SC, when many species of birds travel through on their journey north to breed. Ever wonder where the amazing birds we see at Seabrook and across SC have been all winter, and where they’re headed next? And how
do our feathered friends make these amazingly long flights during migration?
Our next Seabrook Island Birder Evening Zoom Program, 7pm on April 21, is all about our “Winged Wonders - The Phenomenon of Bird Migration”. SIB’s good friend Matt Johnson, Center Director at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary at Francis Beidler Forest, is our guest speaker. Matt has advised us that as you join us for his discussion, these birds will literally be on the move above our heads as they migrate north!
Matt Johnson is the Center Director at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary at the Francis Beidler Forest. A native of South Carolina, Matt grew up in Columbia and attended Clemson University from 2003-2009. He first started working for Audubon South Carolina in 2013 as the Education Manager at Beidler Forest.
