Additional Information: Fish Haul Creek Park is without question one of the
birding gems on Hilton Head Island. Located along the Port Royal Sound,
many bird types take advantage of the varied habitats found there. Among
these habitats are the salt marsh, beach and associated mud flats, which
provide important feeding and resting sites for migrating shorebirds as well
as terns, skimmers, oystercatchers and waders.
This will be a terrific morning to learn how to identify these coastal birds
along with others in the surrounding maritime forest.
Water-proof boots, bug spray, and sunscreen are recommended. We’ll
have a spotting scope on hand, but feel free to bring one if you’d like.
This walk is free to Hilton Head Audubon members, $5 for non-members.
Directions: Fish Haul Creek Park is located on Beach City Road. From
William Hilton Parkway, turn onto Beach City Road and follow about 2 miles
to the four-way stop. Proceed straight ahead and the park entrance will be
on the right.
