Coastal Discovery Museum, at Honey Horn, on Hilton Head Island, SC, Offers Exhibit of Birds

The Coastal Discovery Museum, at Honey Horn, on Hilton Head Island, SC, is presenting the exhibit, Wading and Diving – Birds in the Lowcountry Salt Marsh, featuring works by photographers Eric Horan, Fran Baer, Chris Hefter, Carol Clemens and Juergen Thiessen, on view in the Hilton Head Regional Healthcare Gallery through Sept. 20, 2011.

Curated by the Museum, this exhibit focuses upon the life of birds in the Salt Marsh. Our Salt Marsh is a rich environment visited by a variety of birds, from familiar and spectacular Great Blue Heron and Great Egret, to the secretive Clapper Rail. From large birds of prey such as Ospreys and Bald Eagles, to small lesser known birds such as the Marsh Wren, this exhibit will encompasses the natural history of birds that live or visit the Lowcountry Salt Marsh.

Photographs, three-dimensional depictions and mounted specimens are complemented by scientific data, natural history information and helpful hints for local birding.
