Charleston Birds in February

Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina’s Shem Creek Park has a 2,200 foot-long boardwalk that offers a splendid opportunity to observe wildlife. Winter weather there can be a roll of the dice but on this recent February day, the temperature was in the low to mid 70s. While the species selection was not as robust as perhaps as in the summer, there were plenty of egrets, pelicans, grackles and cormorants to enjoy.
