Black Skimmers: Creatures of Edges | Shorebird Stewardship
Wednesday, Jun 15, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
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.
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.
The Kiawah Island Shorebird Stewardship Program is pleased to host their final Zoom presentation of the season.
