Join Chris Bennett for a walk in Milford Neck, one of the best least-birded areas of the state. More than 10,000 acres of the forest, fields and wetlands are permanently protected by the State of Delaware, The Nature Conservancy and Delaware Wild Lands.  The mosaic of habitats, easily accessed by an excellent road network provide excellent birding opportunities.  We will look for migrating songbirds, shorebirds, waterbirds and raptors.

Meet Chris at the Valero/ShoreStop on northbound SR1 (just north of SR1-US113 merge, across from I.G. Burton Car Dealership) 7:30AM-Noon

A note from Chris:

Milford Neck is one of the best, least-birded, areas of the state. More
than 10,000 acres of forest, fields and wetlands are permanently protected
by the State of Delaware, The Nature Conservancy and Delaware Wild Lands.
I will be leading a fieldtrip to this fantastic area on Sunday, September
24 beginning at 8am. The mosaic of habitats, easily accessed by an
excellent road network provide excellent birding opportunities. We will
look for migrating songbirds, shorebirds, waterbirds and raptors. Meet at
the Valero/ShoreStop gas station on the east side of SR-1 across from the
I.G. Burton Mercedes/BMW dealership just north of Milford where SR-1 and
US-113 merge. From there we will head to the Milford Neck Wildlife Area
Dog Training Area. After walking the dirt roads there we will drive back
roads through forest, fields and marsh in search of fall migrants. I don’t
have a scheduled end time, but participants can leave the group at any
time. Feel free to contact me via email if you have any questions (cpb2564@gmail.com).

I hope to see you Sunday.
