Bountiful Birds at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge

Bountiful Birds at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge

Bird Houses at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge Birds, birds, and more birds. Fiddler crabs too, if you can find them.

Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge is only a 10-to-15-minute drive outside of Dover, Delaware and well worth the visit…especially if you are a bird watcher.

Along with flocks of fowl, you’ll be able to enjoy a few short, easy hikes, and beautiful scenery.

Fresh air blows in from Delaware Bay, giving the Auto Tour route and hiking trails an odd mix of forest smells mixed with salt air. It’s a nice change from the un-salted fresh air in the Columbia River Gorge.
