Bird and Dine is pleased to announce that the first American entry is now available on our website.
We have selected the Black Bass Hotel in Lumberville, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. This historic local inn is beside the Delaware river and has a balcony deck with great river views. The Delaware river valley is a well-known route for migrating birds (and fish!) and over thirty species of warbler have been recorded moving through on migration. Bald Eagles and Peregrines breed along the river valley, and Golden Eagles are regularly seen.
If you are in the area, please visit and let us know how you get on. And, as ever, please tell us about any other candidate pubs, hotels and restaurants that allow you to Bird and Dine. If you want to be really helpful and make it easier for us to process the entry, just complete our form to recommend a ‘bird and dine’ place. Otherwise you can mail us at birdanddine.
The Black Bass Hotel offers fine dining as well as casual fare, and if you want to stay, they have a range of luxury guest suites, so birding doesn’t have to be an arduous activity. The views of the river, woodland, and distant hills to be seen from the deck are spectacular, and provide enjoyment while you wait for the next raptor or heron to arrive. There are opportunities for the keen eye to spot Otters, White-tailed Deer, Raccoons, Muskrats and Beavers along the riverside, and, at dusk, there are several species of bat to be seen.
