Are you among the 55+ million bird watchers living in the United States? If so, better not put those binoculars and field guides away just yet.
Thereâ€™s a special event taking place on a stretch of Sea Island, GA real estateÂ in the weeks ahead and itâ€™s sure to make you smile. The event is actually a birding weekend that features renowned author, pilot and wildlife expert, Giff Beaton.
Beaton, for all of those yet to invest in Sea Island real estate, is all too familiar with the Golden Islesâ€™ feathered inhabitants. Heâ€™s written several books on the topic, which are very popular with island residents. One of his most recently published works is The Breeding Bird Atlas of Georgia. Heâ€™s also written about our areaâ€™s population of damselflies, dragonflies, beetles and spiders.
At 5:30 p.m., on October 10th, heâ€™ll be kicking off the three day event with discussions devoted to migration. The weekend’s remaining list of activities is expected to include bird watching, raptor flight demonstrations, boating, group meals and additional wildlife related lectures.
During the lectures and activities, visitors may have opportunities to witness many of the wild creatures that call Sea Island, Georgia, real estate home. Among them are dolphins, loggerhead turtles, oysters, shrimp and a cavalcade of bird species.
