Not only is the Chesapeake Bay a prime spot for boating, it is also a great location for bird watching.
This quick guide will show you just a few of the birds you can see on the Bay:
Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay are synonymous with blue crabs, a tasty crustacean with a bad attitude. Unfortunately, their meat is cleverly tucked away under an armored shell. Watch a crab-picking pro with 65 years of experience show how to quickly get at the good stuff.
Crab cakes, crab imperial and crab dip are just a few of the blue crab specialties you’ll find at seafood restaurants and on home menus around the Chesapeake Bay region. Those tasty dishes may be challenging to find this year — or cost you more money — because of a shortage of immigrant workers.
I am an over-the-top geek for birds. If the four nest boxes and five bird feeders in my backyard don’t sufficiently bolster my bird-nerd credentials, then the four pairs of binoculars and half a dozen or so bird field guides scattered about my house do.
