Charles Towne Landing Bird Walk for Beginners

At Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site


Birds abound at Charles Towne Landing! With a mix of habitats, a wide variety of birds can be seen and heard at the park. From tiny marsh sparrows to grand wood storks, taking a walk around the site can reward the birding enthusiast with great sightings. Please join our birding partners of Wild Birds Unlimited as their staff introduce participants to the feathered inhabitants of Charles Towne Landing. Our walk will begin at the feeders in front of the Visitor Center as we focus on birds’ basic needs: food, water and shelter. As we walk, we will listen to and begin to identify bird calls. Next, we will talk about the distinguishing features which help us identify specific birds. Finally, we will present a brief overview of field guides and binoculars popular with birders.
