Great Backyard Bird Count Results

Here are the results from South Carolina. A total of 188 species were reported with a 60% increase in the number of reports submitted (total of 1,409). South Carolina missed the top ten list by one species to Louisiana's 189. Thank you for supporting citizen science. Mark your calendars for next February!

Within the last two weeks, the Yellow-throated Warblers (shown in image) have returned to the Francis Beidler Forest. Neotropical songbirds will continue arriving daily from their wintering grounds in Central and South America. The question that many people ask is, "Are the Prothonotary Warblers back yet?" Not yet, but any day now!
