Field Trips

Date: Saturday, November 4

Place: Fish Haul Creek Park

Meeting Spot: Parking lot at Fish Haul Creek

Time: 8:30 am

Limit: 20

Leader: Robert Rommel, HHI Audubon President, author, and

photographer.

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.
