Event Description

Late autumn is a wonderful time to visit the bird-rich Delmarva Peninsula. We'll visit Bombay Hook and Prime Hook NWRs in Delaware, where huge flocks of waterfowl reside, Bald Eagles hunt, and late-season migrants such as pipits, larks, and perhaps a longspur may be found. From our base in Chincoteague, Virginia, we'll spend two days birding Virginia's Eastern Shore at places like Kiptopeke State Park and Chincoteague NWR. Kiptopeke is strategically situated at the bottom of the Delmarva Peninsula and funnels migrants just like Cape May. We should expect to see a large variety of waterbirds, raptors, Brown-headed Nuthatch, and perhaps a rarity or two. Previous trips have recorded American White Pelican, Rough-legged Hawk, Sandhill Crane, White-winged Dove, Cave Swallow, Ash-throated Flycatcher, and Yellow-headed Blackbird, among others. Expect approximately 140 species of birds, plus the Chincoteague ponies, Sika Deer, other mammals, and late-season butterflies and dragonflies.
