Birdwatching on Assateague Island Maryland

Mid-Winter on Assateague Island Maryland might seem like the least enjoyable time to visit, but for birdwatchers, waterfowl enthusiasts and photographers, there are excellent opportunities to enjoy activities.

Among the most common winter birds seen are mallards, black ducks, pintail, teal, shovelers, buffleheads, mergansers, goldeneye, scaup, Canada geese, brant, snow geese, trumpeter swans and the ever present herons, egrets and gulls. In addition to waterfowl and songbirds, there are sika deer, whitetail deer, muskrats, otters and wild ponies.
