Lewes Delmarva Dogfish BirdINNg Weekend
The Lewes Delmarva Dogfish BirdINNg Weekend will be held March 5-7, 2021. We will enjoy great looks at the waterfowl, seabirds, shorebirds, raptors — and seals! — that are on full display in the mid-Atlantic during the winter months. In previous years, we have tallied species including Great Cormorant, Purple Sandpiper, Harlequin Duck, Razorbill, Snow Bunting, as well as up to 65 Harbor and Gray Seals on the boat trips! In 2021, we are super excited to partner with our friends at the Dogfish INN! Located in historic downtown Lewes alongside the canal and a short walk from Fisherman’s Wharf, the Dogfish Inn is the perfect basecamp for exploring all that coastal Delaware has to offer. Holding true to Dogfish Head fashion, you’ll find an offbeat approach to style, quality, and craft throughout each of their 16 rooms and their Super SWEET rental cottage located just up the street. We’ll have special packages for DBW guests (check back soon!), so make the Dogfish INN your basecamp for winter birding! Field trips will include forays into Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge, Cape Henlopen State Park, the Indian River Inlet, and small group “Scoters, Seals & Slightly Mightys” boat tours leaving Lewes. Pair your birding experiences with a stay at the Dogfish INN and Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales! Delmarva Birding Weekends is offering tours with these COVID-19 guidelines in place.
