Birding for Beginners - Bird Walks

Sponsored by WBU. Space is limited. You must register in advance at the store. $5 fee, with participants receiving a $5 coupon.

Wild Birds Unlimited of Hilton Head Island sponsors bird walks at local parks and other birding hot spots, led by Master Naturalist Bob Speare. Walks are two hours in length, with participants meeting at our Wild Birds Unlimited store at Festival Centre (45 Pembroke Dr., Suite 130) between 8:30 and 8:45 a.m. the morning of the walk, then traveling in groups to the chosen location.

These walks, designed especially for new birders, will introduce participants to some of the wonderful bird species found here on Hilton Head Island. Bob will discuss all aspects of birding including which field guides and birding apps to use, the best birding binoculars, and a variety of identification techniques that will help you identify birds on your own. Don’t miss these great opportunities to learn more about our fantastic local birds!

A $5 registration fee in advance is required to reserve your space. We are doing this to minimize the number of no-shows, and to help us be able to accommodate more people on the bird walk. All participants will receive a $5 coupon to use in the store.
