Watch some birds

You don’t need to be a so-called “bird nerd” or birding expert to enjoy the wildlife in Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. From egrets to herons to osprey to bald eagles to cormorants in the fall the birds are plentiful enough to see with your naked eye. There are numerous spots in the refuge where you can stop and watch as the birds feed and sun themselves. If you want more information about just what you’re looking at, check out the refuge’s main visitor center, where various exhibits will show you what birds live or visit the refuge as part of their annual migrations.
