Migratory Bird Hike

Searching for Neotropical Migrants
Sunday, September 28, 8:30am-12:00pm
Congaree National Park, Harry Hampton Visitor Center
Hike Co-leader: Kathleen O'Grady

Join us for a fall hike to look for migratory birds moving through on their way back to the Caribbean, Central America and South America. This is also a good opportunity for final looks at some of our summer resident bird species. During the hike, we will have the opportunity to practice audio identification skills (mostly of resident and summer species), and will be able to observe several species up close.

The hike will be part of the North American Migration Count for Congaree National Park, and our observations will be part of a statewide compilation. We plan to cover other areas of the park both preceding and following the Migratory Bird Hike and welcome additional volunteers.

Contact John Grego (803-331-3366; Please bring water, insect repellent and binoculars. The hike will follow portions of the Sims Trail, Boardwalk Loop Trail and Bluff Trail.
