West Columbia, SC
It’s Spring Time and you know what that means… Migration is upon us! This time of year hundreds of species of birds are migrating through South Carolina and a very unique bird likes to congregate in mass at the confluence of the Broad & Saluda Rivers; the Mississippi Kite! In the Spring time as temperatures warm up, insects begin to emerge and the confluence of the two rivers creates the perfect conditions for an explosion of insects! This draws in predators like Mississippi Kites, who specialize in feeding on insects, to the confluence where we can see a gathering of up to 50 or more kites flying around the downtown Columbia skyline. While the Kite flocks will be our primary target, there will be other migratory birds and riverine wildlife that we'll get to see as well!

We will meet at the Amphitheatre at the West Columbia Riverwalk at 1pm. I will be there to check you in, and once we're all together we'll walk up to the Gervais Street Bridge to view the Kites. From there we'll walk the riverwalk & birdwatch all the way down to Blossom Street. Our walk will last approximately 2 hours where we'll get to see plenty of Kites other migrant birds, and hopefully some river wildlife!
