Program #12655ENZ
5 Days | 4 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Immerse yourself in the birding oasis of Delaware Bay shores, marshes and coastal woodlands — a rich habitat for waterfowl, shorebirds, raptors, warblers and finches. Experience such great birding sites as Bombay Hook and Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuges, and Cape Henlopen State Park. Led by experts who have lived and birded the area for more than 25 years, this adventure is designed for beginning and experienced birders, and typically, well over 100 species of birds are observed.


Highlights

• On a mile-long hike along Gordon's Pond that begins and ends at the ocean, get arm's-length views of Great Blue Herons, plovers and more than a dozen species of shorebirds.
• Explore wooded swamps looking for Prothonotary Warblers and the elusive Pileated Woodpecker.
• Experience historic Cape Henlopen, the direct flight path of thousands of raptors migrating along the coast.

Program Notes

So you can get the most out of your experience, all of our birding programs have a maximum participant-to-instructor ratio of 14:1. Road Scholar birding programs are conducted in accordance with the American Birding Association’s Code of Ethics. Learn more at http://www.aba.org/about/ethics.html
