Birds of South Carolina

Theodore Roosevelt saved more than 234 million acres of American wilderness (plus 88 million acres in National Monuments), almost the size of the Atlantic coast states from Maine to Florida. History still hasn't caught up with the long-term magnitude of this achievement.

(Douglas Brinkley)

427 bird species have been recorded in South Carolina by the Carolina Bird Club (as of Jan 2011).

The Carolina Wren was adopted as the state bird in 1948...replacing the Mocking bird. This bird was promoted by the South Carolina Federated Women's Clubs...as early as 1930.
