Birding in Cape Romain




............................................................................................................................










Cape Romain and Bulls Island hosts nearly 300 species of migratory and resident bird species, including many "life list" birds like long-billed curlew, American avocet and white pelican.  The wildlife refuge is specifically managed for the habitat and preservation of endangered or threatened species like American oystercatchers and wood storks.

Large freshwater impoundments on the interior of Bulls Island make this refuge a vital part of the Atlantic Flyway, and throughout the winter and spring these ponds are covered with ducks and other waterfowl.

Wild Bird magazine listed this refuge as one of the United States top 50 places for birding, and we host birders from around the world through our ferry service, signature birding expeditions and private charters.  If you are interested in exploring Bulls Island and want to focus on birding or spotting a particular species, call us and set up a charter to the island with one of our well-trained and passionate naturalists.  We will tailor a trip that is specific to your group to make your outing perfect.

This pristine wilderness, unchanged since the days that Audubon and Catesby explored this island, is a haven for waterfowl, raptors, songbirds, shore birds and pelagic species.  Bulls Island is Charleston's last wilderness, and the combination of fresh and salt water, maritime forest, beach and marsh make this 5000-acre island the ideal birding destination.




Throughout the year, we offer birding trips in Cape Romain and Bulls Island.  These trips are designed for all skill levels and offer unmatched opportunities to spot birds in their natural habitats.  If you are interested in joining us on an expedition, please
