  • Thanks to our ecological diversity, Worcester County hosts a spectacular variety of birds, both resident and migratory -- over 350 species have been recorded. From our Atlantic coastline across the Pocomoke Forest and down our scenic Pocomoke River, we are home to pelicans and pewees, kingbirds and cuckoos, herons, harriers, and eagles.

    Birding in Worcester County is a chance to experience the unspoiled wilderness which attracts, sustains and protects so much natural life. Within a radius of just a few miles exist the unique--yet easily accessible--worlds of a barrier island, a cypress swamp, centuries-old forest, tidal wetlands, and secluded fields.

    Stop anywhere along the road and you'll be able to observe an abundance of birds which inhabit the immediate vicinity. State and national parks in the county offer camping, nature trails and guided tours, inviting you to share the beauty of our native landscape.

  • No other byway, when viewed on a map, can dare to claim an actual physical resemblance to its name! An imperfect loop links Princess Anne, Snow Hill, Salisbury and other Lower Eastern Shore towns to form the shell of the Blue Crab Byway, while several branches extend out like stubby legs and curved claws toward the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean.
