Pro Birders at Congaree

SCWF's Palmetto Pro Birder class visited Congaree National Park with instructor Dr. Drew Lanham on November 30, 2016. Species encountered included: Hermit Thrush, Winter Wren, Black & White Warbler, Pine Warbler, Blue-headed Vireo, Barred Owl, Red-Shouldered Hawk, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and several others.

The Palmetto Pro Birder Program was developed in 2012 to expose motivated citizens to the diversity of avifauna in the Palmetto State and, by that exposure, build an understanding of the importance of conserving native habitats to maintain or restore the state's avian diversity. More info HERE.
