Congaree National Park owl

Winter Bird Hike February 19

Friends of Congaree Swamp will feature a Great Backyard Bird Count hike on Sunday February 19 starting at 8:30 AM at the Bates Ferry Trailhead off US 601 on the eastern end of the park. We will spend the morning travelling along the US 601 corridor with an emphasis on roadside birding, looking overhead for interesting fly-bys, and short excursions into a variety of habitats. Great Backyard Bird Count activities at the park were initiated by Robin Carter and we are happy to continue to the tradition. Our observations will contribute to all observations made at the park from February 17 to February 20 as part of the Great Backyard Bird Count.
