Kiawah Island Birdwatching

On the shore’s edge you find brown pelicans waiting patiently. They are waiting for breakfast: fish that escaped the dolphins’ feeding.

You then look in wonder at the red knots. These highly endangered birds pause for rest in Kiawah during their 9,000-mile journey from Canada to South America.

In the forest, the ruby-throated hummingbird buzzes around a flower. And you hear the red-bellied woodpecker pecking away. It eludes you at first, but… you will look for it, you will find it, and you will photograph it. A specialist guide ensures you do find these magnificent creatures.
