Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge Reviews & Ratings
A great place to see native and migratory bird species. Herons, egrets, goldfinch, indigo bunting, geese, terns, and even a red fox makes the rounds and poses for pics. Yes, during summer there are lots of biting flies but around August they start to die down. We wear long sleeves and a hat to step out of the car and snap photos. Very friendly people here that are usually happy to discuss birding and sharing photos.
Absolutely gorgeous! This was one of my favorite spots when I vacationed to Dover, DE. If you're ever in the state, go here. There are some amazing opportunities for pictures of the breathtaking views. And, at $4/day, you can't beat the price.
Absolutely beautiful national Park and part of the east coast migratory bird highway. You can see tens of thousands of bird fly through here if you are lucky. Really brings you back to nature. Lots of different paths to drive along and some people here taking photos are definitely professionals. Just don't block the roads, and don't make any noise. Absolutely do not honk your horn, you'll bother the birds.
Large saltmarsh refuge. Great for bird watching and for long walks. Being your sunscreen. Loads of native and migratory bird species. Herons, egrets, gulls, geese, ducks, red fox. There are ticks here, of course.
Beautiful ride, great place for nature photography or just getting back to nature for a little while. You don't even have to leave your car if you don't want to, but the views are worth taking the trails.
