St. Simons Real Estate Ownership Offers Bird Watchers’ Paradise

Have you developed an interest in bird watching? If so, you’ll undoubtedly be pleased to know that owning a piece of St. Simons real estate will give you ample opportunities to follow your passion.

One of the best, free places to bird watch year round on St. Simons Island is Gould’s Inlet. It is considered to be part of our state’s Colonial Coast Birding Trail. If you do decide to go, bring binoculars, a beach chair or blanket and a picnic lunch. That way, you can enjoy a late afternoon repast with a stunning ocean view. Public restrooms and running water are available onsite.

To get there take the East Beach Causeway to Bruce Drive. Once there, park in the Coast Guard Station’s lot and walk to the end of the drive. Then let the bird watching begin. In the fall and winter months, be on the lookout for red-throated loons, northern gannets and warblers. They tend to be prevalent at those times of the year. Other birds that you may encounter are American oystercatchers, brown pelicans and ruddy turnstones.

We should also mention that some St. Simons real estate owners don’t have to venture out much further than their backyards to bird watch. That’s because it is not uncommon to find an array of birds all throughout the island. Among them are ruby-throated hummingbirds and screech owls.

Those residents that do want to venture out may want to make contact with the Coastal Georgia Audubon Society. Some of the groups’ members live on St. Simons Island. They also tend to meet nearby and host bird watching trips. Thus, joining them would be a great way to meet new friends and discover all of the island’s lesser known birding hot spots.
