Most of Delaware is quite flat, but a crescent of very different terrain caps our northwestern edge. Rolling hills, lushly vegetated stream valleys, and towering deciduous forests dominate the landscape here, along with the cities of Wilmington and Newark. Birding highlights include migrant, breeding, and wintering songbirds, as well as southbound raptors.
There are six excellent birding sites in the Ocean Beaches & Inland Bays Region. Click to visit each one - note location on the scrolling map at right:
