Fall Birding at Bombay Hook with Chris Bennett

October 21, 2023 @ 8:00 am 12:00 pm EDT

Leatherberry Flats by Chris Bennett

Herons and egrets, shorebirds, songbirds & more at Bombay Hook!

Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge is one of the premier birding sites in the eastern United States and it’s a short trip from anywhere in the state of Delaware. Early fall is a great time to search the refuge for songbirds, shorebirds, herons and egrets, terns and gulls, waterfowl and raptors. We will bird the wildlife drive with short walks on flat, well-maintained trails.
