We were there on Memorial Day weekend. It was about 90 degrees and humid. The birds had enough sense to hunker down somewhere. All we saw were red wings. The museum was minimal. The staff was quite helpful and friendly.

Hard to rate mid-winter - except easy to get around (doubt it's easy in Spring/Fall), nice viewing points, well-marked trails - ea relaxing view of diverse waterfowl in an historic area.

A hidden gem on the Eastern Shore - perfect for observing the migration of waterfowl. We watched 5(!!!!!) Bald Eagles flying and hunting over the visitor's center.

Since we were visiting Chestertown in Maryland's Eastern Shore, we decided to check out the Eastern Neck NWR, and we were not disappointed. Located at the end of Route 20, 21 miles southeast of Chestertown, it offers seven trails, wonderful views of wetlands and wildlife,...More

This island is so unspoiled that is easy to imagine how this fragile land was when it was first settled. Nice walks, beautiful vistas and woods. We saw several bald eagles, red squirrels, and butterflies. A real treasure.

We saw various types of butterflies and lots of monarchs migrating in the butterfly field. We also saw a large number of gulls, small birds, buzzards and one young eagle. It was great to walk all of the various trails.
