More than 110 species were tallied during the 2016 Winter DBW, and highlight species may include Harlequin Duck, Great Cormorant, Purple Sandpiper, and 27 species of waterfowl. Winter birding trips include a near-shore maritime boat cruise to enjoy pelagic and arctic migrants, eagle-watching trips, and jaunts in Delaware and Maryland through some of the most pristine habitats on the East Coast.
