bird watching in the Chesapeake bay

Hello all

We are sailing out of anapolis tomorrow on our way to st micheals.

They cant take us until sunday, so we though perhaps we could anchor overnight near a good bird watching spot.

Any recommendations?

I was going to suggest the Wye River, East or West too.
Only about 5 miles from St. Mike's.

Re: bird watching in the Chesapeake bay

Hell Everyone
We did end up checking out the wye river. We draw 8 ft so it was a little tricky in places. Esp. I am not used to navigating windy rivers. We ended up dropping anchor off of what was labelled as a wildlife area. Sorry i cant
This turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. Despite being labelled as the " Wye Island Natural resources management area. The area has only very thing strips of forest habitat the rest is a CORN FIELD.

Here is the google map link

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=38.88...%20USA%29&z=14

Despite this disappointment we made the best of it. There where plenty of birds in the narrow strips of forest. We saw Ospreys, herons and lots of smaller birds i dont know the name of.

We also found a small beach area where our baby could splash in the sand and shallows.

Thanks for the the tip.

Andreas
