Ventured out of state for a long weekend and did some birding in the Charleston, SC area. The night-heron rookery at White Point Garden/Battery Park is worth a visit. Other highlights out on the islands (James, Kiawah, Sullivan’s) included Painted Bunting, Wood Stork, Anhinga, Tricolored Heron, and Wilson’s Plover. A variety of egrets and herons can be seen easily all over the tidal flats. Also saw several Mississippi Kites over neighborhoods in the city as well as a couple out on the islands. Saw one from I95 in southern NC, but none in Virginia unfortunately.
