Gibbes in the Wild: Sunset on Shem Book Now

Birding on Bulls is a special expedition to celebrate the exhibit Lying in Wait: Sporting Art by Odgen M. Pleissner. Forty-eight watercolors will be on display from January 18-May 12, 2019 at the Gibbes Museum in Charleston, South Carolina.


 

Join Coastal Expeditions owner Chris Crolley on a special birding and naturalizing boat tour into the Charleston Harbor at sunset on Saturday, March 30

Departing from the Coastal Expeditions dock, we’ll set out to see birds that Odgen Pleissner would have observed and painted during his time on the eastern seaboard and in South Carolina like clapper rail, black skimmers, ruddy turnstones and Eastern brown pelicans.  

As dusk descends on the rivers that come together to form the Charleston Harbor, we’ll watch ibises and egrets return to their roosts and clapper rails nestle into the marsh grass.  Night herons will set out for their nocturnal hunt and black skimmers will gracefully fish along the edges of the tidal creeks.

Want to explore more?  Join Chris on a Gibbes Unplugged Tour of the exhibit on February 27.  Free with admission to the Gibbes Museum.
