Spring Is The Best Time To See Eagles And Ospreys In Delaware’s Wilderness Areas

Spring is in the air, and everyone’s bird feeders are getting emptier by the day! When you want to step out of your backyard and into a world of enormous and rare shorebirds, head to Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge, or Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge, to find a world of Ospreys and Eagles soaring above and caring for their nests.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Visit Bombay Hook or Prime Hook in Spring and early Summer to see ospreys and eagles in Delaware’s National Wildlife Refuges. You can find more information on the Bombay Hook NWR website, here, or the Prime Hook NWR website, here. Don’t forget to bring binoculars!
