The ChesapThe seagull, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel's trademark bird, is a common sighting along the facility.eake Bay Bridge-Tunnel offers travelers and birding enthusiasts the opportunity to observe birds and waterfowl from its four man-made islands. The Bridge-Tunnel’s habitat of concrete, steel, asphalt and rocks located in open water, makes an inviting rest stop for birds during their spring and fall migrations.

CBBT is a tempting rest area to numerous birds and waterfowl. The large habitat over the open water is irresistible to birds migrating along the Atlantic Flyway. Their presence has in turn attracted avid bird-watchers, or “birders,” from all across the U.S. and even the world! Great views of these unique waterfowl are available from the scenic outlook at the North End as well as our southernmost island.
