Long-Billed Curlew Expedition Book Now

As the weather cools and the northerly winds start to blow, birding in the Lowcountry blossoms. Join us on a guided birding trip through the estuaries to the northern end of the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge in search of migrating shorebirds, songbirds, and birds of prey.

We’ll take you to the hidden spots where long-billed curlew can be found for a chance to see this life list-worthy bird in its native habitat. While we are out, expect to see other extraordinary avian species like peregrine falcons, marbled godwits, whimbrels, marsh wrens and seaside sparrows.

Throughout the year, 293 bird species are classified within Cape Romain, and many of them are seen during the fall migration along the Atlantic Flyway.

This is a very special opportunity for winter birding in the north end of Cape Romain. With close-up views of the historic lighthouses and unmatched scenery, this trip is perfect for photographers, birders, nature-lovers and history buffs.

We schedule this trip once the curlews come back in late fall or early winter.  If you’d like have priority booking on this trip, please sign up for our mailing list.
