Birding

Santee Lakes has several types of wildlife that call it home, but the most diverse population of wildlife is the vast species of birds.  With well over 200 different species of birds that either live here full-time or pass through to avoid the cold, Santee Lakes is the perfect place to photograph, and enjoy birds of all kinds.  For a complete list of bird species view our Bird List.  You can also check out this great app Merlin Bird ID by Cornell Lab to help you identify all types of birds no matter where you are!
