Pelicans & Birding on Smith Island

On June 24, 2022 Kayaking Delmarva returned to Smith Island with Delmarva Birding Weekends to view the nesting Brown Pelicans. It’s estimated 1,000 Brown Pelicans build their nests a short distance from Smith Island. On the high tide one may approach by small boat maintaining a respectable distance. […]

Millsboro Pond

Tuckahoe Creek Revisited
