Center for Birds of Prey

CANCELED: Welcome to the second annual Zugunruhefest birding festival. Zugunruhe (zu – gun – rue) is a German word derived from Zug (move, migration) and Unruhe (restlessness). This state of restlessness is commonly noted in migratory animals, especially birds. As fall approaches and instincts prevail, birds are compelled by this silent call to take flight to their wintering grounds. As part of the Atlantic Flyway, the Lowcountry serves as a predictable thoroughfare for migrating raptors and shorebirds during fall migration. Exploiting the Center’s location, Zugunruhefest will afford numerous opportunities for observers to experience fall migration from an exceptional vantage point.
