January 1 day trip (1 Viewer)

I'm in B'more MD and want to take a day trip on Jan 1 to bird. Within 3 or so hours of B'more in any direction. What is your recommendation, and what could I see? I have thought of Long Island (4 hrs) or Erie PA (5 hrs). I'm not sure what to look for when choosing a place. Thanks!

Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge near Dover & Smyrna Delaware might be a good place. There could be large numbers of Snow Geese there (or not). Eastern Neck NWR kind of near Chesterown Maryland should have a lot of waterfowl too. Each is about 2 hours or less from Baltimore.
