Located at the tip of the Delmarva Peninsula, this area is one of the most important avian migration funnels in North America. Each fall, the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Fisherman Island National Wildlife Refuges are the scene of a spectacular drama as millions of songbirds and monarch butterflies and thousands of raptors converge on their voyage south. Protected habitats such as these provide critical stopover areas where birds and butterflies can rest and feed before resuming their arduous journey.
