Norman G. Wilder Wildlife Area with Chris Bennett

Kentucky Warbler by Michael Moore
Forest Birding at Norman G. Wilder WLA
Norman G. Wilder Wildlife Area, located northwest of Felton in Kent County, is a mosaic of forest, fields and wetlands near the geographic center of Delaware. The site is a lightly birded area teeming with great breeding songbirds including Pine, Kentucky and Worm-eating Warblers, Ovenbirds, Yellow-throated Vireos, Scarlet and Summer Tanagers, Yellow-billed Cuckoos and more. With luck, we may also find a nice variety of migrants as well. We will be walking a flat, unimproved road for a distance of about 4 miles. Helpfully offered during the week of the Delaware Bird-A-Thon for folks out for the count!
Our leader is Chris Bennett, contact at [email protected] if you have any questions about this trip.
A Conservation Access Pass is required to park in the Wildlife Area parking lot where we will meet. The parking lot is located on Five Foot Prong Road near its junction with Firetower Road.
