Featured Great Places
Port Mahon Preserve
The Nature Conservancy's Port Mahon Preserve is open to the public for birding and nature study. This pristine location at the mouth of the Mahon River makes for a great spot to observe spawning horseshoe crabs and the shorebirds that feed on their eggs. We suggest you visit during the months of May and June to catch them at their peak.
Featured Great Events
Delaware Birding Weekend
The Delaware Bird-A-Thon is a fun fundraising event. It challenges birders to raise money based on the number of species they see or hear in one day. There are even multiple bird walks from which you can choose.
