Alice had a bridge tournament in Hilton Head, SC, and I was eager to go with her to search for different avian species and to enjoy some warmer weather. We had done this same trip in 2016, and at that time, soon found that the best nearby wildlife area was the Savannah NWR about 40 miles away. However, when researching my potential birding sites for this trip, I learned that this NWR was closed until sometime in 2023, so I needed to find some other places to do. In 2016, I also visited Pinckney Island NWR, Fish Haul and Mitchelville Parks, and the Coastal Discovery Museum, but these sites were not enough to keep me busy for the week. So I read about two other places, the Sea Pines Forest Preserve and the Audubon Newhall Preserve, and added them to my birding sites.
