Our goal is to provide current, accurate information about some of the Shore’s most interesting birding sites, so that visitors can come prepared to go birding “like a local” and get the most out of their stays in this beautiful part of the world.
Almost every birder who comes to the Shore has a general idea of what they would most like to do or most like to see. Many birders enjoy the unpredictable migration seasons, when just about any of the 439 species recorded here might show up. Others are keen to see specialty birds such as Saltmarsh Sparrow. And still others are looking for a prize —perhaps a species never seen before, or never before in Virginia.
