The Tidal Delaware River and its surrounding habitat are rich with a wide variety of bird species—a cross-section of which are represented here. The river’s aquatic, freshwater tidal marshes, adjacent wet and dry meadows, and wooded areas provide important feeding, resting, and nesting habitats for migratory as well as year-round resident birds. So grab a pair of binoculars and a field guide and you’ll be rewarded with a deeper dimension to experiencing birdlife, the river, its surrounding habitat, and the seasons.
