Particularly rewarding for beginners, this small marina is worth a quick stop if you’re in the area. The waterfront boardwalk (west-facing) has a series of educational signs on the area’s more common birds like Double-crested Cormorants, Brown Pelicans, herons and egrets. The boardwalk ends at Oaks By the Bay Park to the south, where trees can be attractive for wood-warblers in spring and fall. A dune walkover here provides access to the beachfront, for chance encounters with shorebirds like Greater Yellowlegs and Dunlin, as well as Sandwich Terns, Lesser Scaup and Common Loons on the bay in winter.
