Most of us on Kiawah have been lucky enough to see the flocks of gorgeous Black Skimmers on the ends of our island, or the awesome sight of these birds flying low over the ocean skimming the water with their beaks to catch fish. Here is an opportunity to learn more about these amazing birds. See Zoom link below.
The Kiawah Island Shorebird Stewardship Program is pleased to host their final Zoom presentation of the season on Wednesday, June 15 at 10:00 am with presenter Janet Thibault, shorebird biologist with South Carolina Dept. of Natural Resources
You never forget when you see a Skimmer – those candy corn-billed, jet black-backed, graceful flying birds of dusk and dawn. Come listen as SCDNR Biologist, Janet Thibault, shares some natural history, geology and adaptation of these fascinating seabirds and learn how SCDNR is at the forefront of protection and conservation of nesting Skimmers in South Carolina.
