When it comes to the wonders of migration, shorebirds seem to be the best at it, routinely flying from the bottom of the world up to the top and then back again. When it comes to tourism, coastal South Carolina is half-way between Miami and New York, and therefore the Lowcountry is within geographic reach of the large population living on the East Coast. In terms of shorebird migration, that same S.C. coastline is about halfway between South America and the Arctic, making the Lowcountry an excellent location for shorebirds like the red knot to pause and feed before continuing to migrate. While both tourists and shorebirds will stay in the Lowcountry for just a short time, it's only a matter of time until they return.
