Don’t miss out on the magnificent migrations that occur like clockwork each fall. East Coasters eager to see scads of migrating birds can up their chances at refuges like Cape May National Wildlife Refuge in New Jersey, Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and the Coastal Delaware National Wildlife Refuges.

In early fall, hawks, shorebirds and songbirds pile up at Cape May NWR and nearby areas, waiting for the right conditions to cross Delaware Bay. A few weeks later, up to 16,000 geese and waterfowl start arriving at Blackwater NWR — sometimes called the “Everglades of the North.” Tundra swans, bald eagles and snow geese join the mix in November and December. Pictured here are the snow geese that pass through Bombay Hook NWR by the thousands.
