The southern tip of the Delmarva Peninsula is an important migratory bird stopover location along the Atlantic coast. This narrowing peninsula created by the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean causes a funneling effect on the birds as they fly south. Our current bird list of 406 species, found in and around the refuge, is a great resource for planning your bird watching visit.
