Little birdies in the sky – and trees and feeders – delight us

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

At the Pat Conroy Literary Center’s annual Lowcountry Book Club Convention, held at the beautiful Technical College of the Lowcountry’s Culinary Arts Institute in Bluffton, we asked: “What’s your favorite bird, and why?”

Alice Ricard, Bluffton: “The flamingo, because it’s so funny and gawky. I have flamingo bags for my grandchildren, with fun treats, toys and snacks.”

Vanessa Eccles, Savannah: “Yellow warbler, because they’re so cute and tiny and round.”












Maureen Dean, Bluffton: “Bluebird. It’s the state bird of New York, but I never saw one until I moved here!”

Joann Lillis, Hardeeville: “Great blue heron, because of its massive size and coloring, it’s so graceful and beautiful.”

Karen McDowell, Beaufort: “Painted bunting. A pair came to my feeder this year for the first time!”
