23rd annual Spring Delmarva Birding Weekend
Since 1995, birders have migrated to the Delmarva Peninsula each April to participate in the Spring Delmarva Birding Weekend. The event features guided bird watching field trips in some of the East Coast’s premier wildlife refuges and parks. Delaware’s most famous birding hot spot, Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge near Dover, Delaware, offers a cornucopia of birding opportunities – from salt marsh and bay beach to freshwater ponds and rich, deciduous woodlands. We’ll sample each of the main habitat types looking for migrants and local breeders, including wading birds, shorebirds, rails, and colorful songbirds. The trip will involve some easy walking, and car caravans between major stops.
