At the end of the river, the places where the river empties out into something else, usually a lake or the ocean.

The reason that some rivers enter the sea with a delta rether than an estuary depends on tidal flow. Where there is little difference in the tidal range a Delta is formed, as in the Mississippi entering the Gulf of Mexico.
