“it was an amazing experience to see 6000 white geese at one location--(and that was after most of the geese left!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

I had read about the massive geese migration in the paper and debated as to whether to drive the distance or not because the warden said most of them had left. It was a beautiful day, we went and the sight was amazing! Six thousand snow geese remained. Can you image if you saw the whole show. The area in which they were congregating looked like a of field of snow. Solid white. At one point they took off and the noise they created sounded like a jet plane. They took flight, made a U turn and landed in the same spot. It was well worth the drive, plus if you have time, it is a good opportunity to drive through Amish country.

“Perfect for Those Willing to Wait for Bird Sightings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

Home to at least one American Bald Eagle, waterfowl, and more. Small visitors center with great guidance from educators. Fishing, picnic areas, and drive routes. Influx of tundra swans and Chesapeake Snow Geese can be so dense that they cover the water and late Jan/Feb/March.

“Scenic walks and bird watching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2009

Beautiful area with a variety of birds. Great sledding in the winter. Lousy hiking after frequent rain.
