Birding at Lake Waccamaw
September 15 | 8:30-11:30 am
Registration $55
Join local expert and friend of the bird store Wayne Hoffman and store owner Jill Peleuses on a birding trip to Lake Waccamaw. Lake Waccamaw is the largest of North Carolina’s mysterious “Carolina Bay” lakes, with the typical oval shape and sandy southern ridge. The State Park is along the southeastern shore, and contains a diversity of bird habitats, including pine flatwoods, swampy hardwood forest, and oak-pine sand ridges. We hope to find a variety of land birds, including Bobwhite Quail, woodpeckers, and some early Fall migrants. This is also a good area for observing native reptiles and amphibians, including Alligators and several species of turtles and lizards.
Birding at Fort Fisher
October 27th | 8:30-11:30
Registration $55
Join Wayne and Jill on a birding trip to Fort Fisher. Fort Fisher is an excellent location for a wide variety of land and water birds. The coastal shrubby thicket, live oak trees, marshes, beach, and dunes provide habitat for some of our local favorites as well as exciting migrants. Notable sightings in the area during past Octobers have included bitterns, plovers, flycatchers, and migrating warblers, among others.
Birding at Greenfield Lake 
November 10 | 8:30-11:30 am
Registration $55
Join Wayne and Jill on a birding trip to local hotspot, Greenfield Lake. Greenfield Lake Park covers 190 acres of lush public gardens surrounding a man-made lake. The 5-miles of walking trails pass through a diversity of bird habitats where we will be likely to see a variety of waterfowl, waders, woodpeckers, and raptors. This is also a great area for observing native reptiles and amphibians, including Alligators, turtles, snakes, and lizards.
