Fort Moultrie is a unit of Fort Sumter National Monument. The site is located on Sullivan's Island and is accessible by car. Today it is restored to portray the major periods of its history. The Fort provides a trip through time from the World War II Harbor Entrance Control Post to the site of the Palmetto-log fort of 1776.


Fort Moultrie is also a great area for birding in fall, winter or spring. Winter can produce good sightings of Gulls and Terns as they move between their feeding grounds outside the harbor to their roosts on sandbars and islands inside the harbor. One can often see Common Ground-Doves here early and late in the day. They like to eat grass seeds and gather grit for their crops at the edge of the brush here. A resident colony of Field Sparrows also lives around the area. Seasonally you may see Eastern Meadowlarks, Loggerhead Shrikes and Eastern Bluebirds, and Sparrows.
