Fodor's Review

At this serene wildlife preserve adjacent to Bayview State Park, the Breazeale Interpretive Center has great birding: there are black Brant (or Brent) geese, raptors, peregrine falcons, and bald eagles. Trails lead into the woods and to a rocky beach, with more good bird-watching opportunities. The 2¼-mile Shore Trail starts at the south end of Bayview; look for signs directing you to the parking area, which is away from the water off the east side of the road.
