Depending on what types of migrating birds you may be looking for. Late Fall is great as there are hundreds of Tundra Swans. Take binoculars or spotting scope. Many types of ducks as well. Very rural environment, old farm land.

A bit out of the way, out side Rock Hall, Eastern Neck is a hidden gem. There are several walking trails, a fishing bridge when you come in, several blinds for watching water life. Well worth a visit

We have been coming to Rockhall annually for 8 years and somehow never knew this gem of a place was here. Beautiful scenic trails and drives. Fantastic bird watching. And the butterfly gardens were just inspiring! We will definitely be back next year!
