The ninth annual Sea Islands Christmas Bird Count will take place Jan. 3, 2020. The count includes Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, Wadmalaw Island and Johns Island.
Count organizer Aaron Given, town of Kiawah Island wildlife biologist, is looking for Kiawah residents to participate.
Aaron is looking for residents that have bird feeders and are willing to count birds that visit their feeders throughout the day. In addition, if anyone still has painted buntings or hummingbirds coming to their bird feeders, please email Aaron at agiven@ kiawahisland.org.
The Christmas Bird Count is a volunteer-based bird census conducted each winter and sponsored by The National Audubon Society. This census has a rich history dating back to the year 1900.
