Wine and Warblers

The weather was perfect for the fourth annual Wine and Warblers at the Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest! A brief, pre-event shower gave everything a wash and freshened the colors of birds and plants alike.

Guests joined expert birdwatchers for an evening on the boardwalk exploring the wide variety of songbirds that return each spring to Beidler Forest. A fine selection of hors d'oeuvres and wines were available in the nature center and at several stops along the boardwalk, which winds its way through the ancient swamp forest. Friendships were made or renewed as guests shared their interests in birds, photography, wine, conservation, and peaceful places like the swamp in the evening. By all accounts, this popular event was a resounding success!

Proceeds from this annual event benefit Audubon South Carolina. This year's Wine and Warblers sold out several weeks before the event, so be sure to make your reservations early for 2009!
