Location: Lower Savannah River Alliance, 12049 Burton's Ferry Highway, Allendale, SC 29810
Address:
P.O. Box 60
Augusta, Georgia 30903
USA

Description:
The Lower Savannah River Alliance is holding its Annual Swallow-tailed Kite Outing. The Swallow-tailed Kite, with its distinct black and white plumage, is one of the most elegant birds of the Americas, and unmistakable in the summer skies above the Savannah River swamps. They gracefully glide with minimal wingbeats, using twists of their incredible scissor-tails to maneuver quick acrobatic turns to capture and devour bugs in mid-flight. Birders as well as non-birders, photographers, and naturalists of all ages will have the opportunity to witness this amazing aerial display, as dozens of Swallow-tailed Kites and Mississippi Kites forage on insects in a long-standing Kite hotspot. After rearing their young in treetop nests near the Savannah River, the Swallow-tailed Kites migrate in late summer to wintering grounds in South America.

Birds to See:
Swallow-tailed Kite, Mississippi Kite, White Ibis, Cattle Egret, Great Egret, Little Blue Heron, Great Blue Heron, American Kestrel, Woodpeckers, Hawks, Grosbeaks, Buntings, and a variety of other birds.
